MEDFORD, Ore. — The Oregon Connections Academy is hosting informational sessions Monday for parents interested in getting their children enrolled in online schooling. More and more families are exploring the option of virtual public school, and the Oregon Connections Academy said they are the leading tuition-free online public charter school in Oregon.
The informational sessions start August 11th at 11:00 a.m. at the Inn at the Commons, 200 North Riverside Avenue in Medford. There is also a session being held in Roseburg starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express, 375 West Harvard Boulevard.
“It’s important for families considering full-time virtual schooling to attend one of the information sessions or parent meetings we host for families,” said Candy Farthing, Interim Executive Director at Oregon Connections Academy. “Planning ahead, and understanding how it all works is essential to ensuring the academic and emotional success of students enrolled in our school. Attending an Oregon Connections Academy event can help families get a feel for what to expect and what’s involved in online education to determine if it’s the best fit for their student.”
At the information sessions parents will have an opportunity to find out more about the Oregon Connections Academy curriculum, and thoroughly explore the program. Parent-to-Parent meetings are designed to allow new families to meet with those who currently have students enrolled in Oregon Connections Academy. For those unable to attend an in-person information session, real-time interactive online sessions with a school representative are being held and an online on-demand session is available for viewing 24/7.
Enrollment for the 2014-15 school year is underway. Families who begin the enrollment process have the opportunity to explore some of the unique clubs and activities the school offers through LiveLesson® sessions-online classroom sessions-over the summer months.
