OK Connections Academy offers alternative to traditional school

OK (KSWO)- If you've ever thought of taking your child out of the traditional brick and mortar school, but didn't want to home school your children, there's a free, state-funded online program offered.

Students attending the Oklahoma Connections Academy take four core classes like Math, Science, English, and Social Studies and two other electives. The program, which is open to students in grades K-12, requires them to spend an hour a day in each subject.

Connections teacher Melissa Patrick says the students begin their day by logging in and checking their planning calendar.

"They'll just go through their daily lessons and if they need to contact a teacher, we're available via web mail or via phone or we also record live lessons where they can actually interact with us online," explained Patrick.

The teachers also call the students sporadically to make sure they're understanding what they're learning.

The students have a learning coach which is usually a parent or a guardian who makes sure they're doing their work every day.
