Virtual Middle School Courses
Aycock School families,
Starting in June, GCS will offer FREE online math courses to middle school students over the summer. These courses will introduce students to the online learning environment, and teach them the necessary skills to be successful in the online setting (i.e.-time management, communication skills, reading and writing, etc.). The courses will be taught and led by GCS middle-school teachers.
Interested students will take their course outside of school, and may access it anywhere/anytime with internet access. Students work at their own pace with the guidance of an online teacher. They must take responsibility for doing the work and completing the assignments within specific time frames supported by the teacher.
The available courses are:
* Ready for Accelerated Math 7 - For students currently enrolled in Math 6 interested in taking Accelerated Math 7 for the 2015-2016 school year.
* Ready for Accelerated Math 8 - For students currently enrolled in Math 7 interested in taking Accelerated Math 8 for the 2015-2016 school year.
* Ready for Math I- For students currently enrolled in Accelerated Math 7 that may need additional instruction to better prepare them for Math I. This course is pass/fail and does not determine placement for the 2015-2016 school year.
The online courses are pass/fail and do not impact student records or math placement. This is an opportunity for students to experience online learning, with a focus on improving their math skills. Students need a computer and Internet access to participate.
