Digital Academy

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year and a new opportunity for your pathway to success. The SCOESC Digital Academy provides an alternative learning style that allows students to stay enrolled at your home district but complete work through our academy.
The SCOESC Digital Academy is set up to assist your learning style and keep you on track to achieve your grade level requirements toward your high school graduation. You are going to utilize your drive and knowledge to build your skills. You are working on gaining independence in an individual way that best fits your learning style.

  1. Attendance
    • Student attendance will be reported to the individual district designee on a regular basis, following school guidelines.  SCOESC Digital Academy will report absences to the attendance officers as needed.
    • If you are not required to be in the physical classroom, your attendance will be determined by completing a minimum of 6% of each course per week.
      1. 5%-6% you are counted here all five day (along with in person)
      2. 4% you will be counted as absent 1 day
      3. 3% you will be counted absent 2 days
      4. 2% you will be counted absent 3 days
      5. 1% you will be counted absent 4 days
      6. 0% you will be counted absent all week
                        All students are expected to minimally maintain a passing grade!
    • After an allotted amount of absences, or if passing grades are not maintained, the student may be required to physically report to the classroom for a set time/days, or guidelines for truancy or a safety-check will be followed. In some circumstances, the student may be returned to the regular classroom and denied enrollment into the SCOESC Academy. If required, an administrative meeting will convene and other placement may take place.
    • There are 4 Tiers that will inform you on how often you must be in a physical classroom. Some individual circumstances may allow/require fluid movement from one plan to another plan at the discretion of principals, special education teams, school counselors, or the Digital Academy Coordinator.
Plan A - Physically reporting to the classroom at least one day every week grades 6-12
                Monday – Seniors
               Tuesday – Juniors
               Wednesday – Sophomores
                Thursday – Freshman
                Friday – Middle School (Grades 6-8)
Home- Elementary students will attend each day at home with scheduled times and synchronously with FES teachers.  Progress will be monitored and enrollment in the program is continued upon attendance and progress.
Plan B - Physically in attendance 2 to 3 days a week for full day – SCOESC Digital Academy students that have not made progress will be assigned extra days to work in person at the SCOESC.
Plan C - 5 days a week for the full school day.   If you are enrolled in the SCOESC Digital Academy and have not met the standards or requirements to fulfill your obligation to the class. 
Plan D - Students will report at least one day per month with weekly digital check ins. 
**The attendance plans (tiers) are fluid and can be changed at the discretion of the teacher, administrators, school/parent/special education teams.

  2. Attendance will be enforced and monitored to abide by the rules and laws of the school and the State of Ohio.

  3. Students must check-in upon arrival

  4. There will be progress monitoring and rewards for goals met. Rewards may include device time, game time, free time, fun activities, special treats, etc.

  5. Students may keep their coats, book bags, and other belongings with them as long as there are no safety concerns.

  6. If there are suspicions of safety, weapons, drugs or other contraband not permitted in school, the belongings may be confiscated and turned over to the principals or juvenile court.

  7. All students are expected to travel to the Digital Academy via school transportation.  The SCOESC Digital Academy does not have student parking.
