State College Virtual SchoolBeginning in the Summer of 2011 the State College Area School District started offering individual virtual flex classes that State High students may take to try and meet their individual needs. The courses have been designed to align with the SCASD curriculum. These courses will continue to be offered in the regular classroom setting as well. Most of the courses will be run through software titled Edgenuity. For more information on Edgenuity please visit the "Resources" tab on our website. The only flex course that will not be run through Edgenuity is Drivers Education, which will be run through SCoodle.Course SuccessSuccess in these virtual courses will be highly dependent on a student’s motivation, ability to learn independently, and time management skills. Students who struggle in these areas should consider taking the course in the traditional setting.
Students who take these courses will move through the course at their own pace with the understanding of the deadline for completion. SCASD teachers will oversee a student’s progress through the course and will be available to answer any questions and meet with the students. The courses are entirely online, with the exception of the Physical Education courses which will also require a physical activity component.
