Online Learners should be 25% complete with their courses

Dear Parents and Guardians,


Talk about SNOW DAYS! Hopefully, you all took advantage of the remote learning day and were able to enjoy the new snow. The second semester is starting to sneak away from us all, as planning for graduation and summer school begins, don't forget to keep up with your learning. Online learners should be at least 25% complete with course work and our younger students should be navigating the curriculum efficiently.

Keep an eye on our calendar as there are lots of events happening in the coming weeks. But beyond that enjoy the warmer winter weather, strap on the skis, and go!

Lottery Opens 2/15


Next year, PAIDEIA will be getting the best of both worlds. We will be part of the lottery and stay an open-enrollment school. For current PAIDEIA families, nothing changes; your registration rolls over to us for next year.

However, if you have family or friends who are interested in attending PAIDEIA next year, their best bet is to enroll in the lottery. Accessing the lottery also helps with ensuring our staffing numbers maintain for next year.

Independent Study Classes


As we begin the new semester please take note that all middle and high school independent study classes (PE, Cooking, Art, etc.) require weekly logged time in canvas. All of these courses have outlines in canvas of how to log time and provide artifacts. Grades and credit will be assigned based on the progress in each class. Please make sure students are monitoring their logs as the semester progresses.
