Nevada district agrees to pursue online academy for next school year
The Nevada Community School District is seeking state approval to offer an online academy in the fall through a provider that some of its students are already familiar with.
The district’s plan is to offer a virtual learning academy through Edmentum EdOptions — through which high school students in the district have been able to access virtual course options for the past several years, said Kody Asmus, Nevada’s associate superintendent for school improvement.
Asmus presented to Nevada’s school board Monday night a plan for Edmentum to also offer programs to the district’s students in grades K-8 in the 2021-22 school year.
The board approved for the district to move forward with the plan and seek state approval, which it needs in order to offer open enrollment access to remote learners from outside the district.
