Announcements

Brain Boost Available NOW in the OLS

We are very excited to announce that our new and returning managed public school students will be able to participate in the Brain Boost Summer Enrichment program. The program is for students in grades K–12. The goal of this new program is to offer a fun and engaging in-platform experience within the Online School, especially for newly enrolled students to give them time to experience our platform before regular school starts in the fall.


Students in kindergarten to sixth grade will participate in the courses using Stride Math and Stride ELA. In these courses the students will earn coins to play fun and educational math and language arts games. There are different kinds of games, including Stride Academy, Space Coaster, and Koofu’s Quest. The Introduction to Stride video will show students how to access Stride, how to answer questions, where to find Stride games, and more. Any coins, badges or star points earned over the summer will carry over into the school year, giving those students a pool of earned items to utilize as of the first day of school.


Log in TODAY and check it out!
