Transitions in and out of SFCL will take place on a quarterly basis.
Spring-Ford Area School District is pleased to offer Spring-Ford Cyber Learning for the new school year! SFCL has been developed by the Spring-Ford Curriculum and Instruction Department, and will be taught by the Spring-Ford teachers your child already knows. SFCL offers students the opportunity to engage in personalized education from home, with the added benefit of being eligible to participate in many SFASD extra-curricular activities.
The goal of SFCL is ultimately to provide a seamless blending of online and brick-and-mortar offerings for all students.
What is traditional "cyber school?" Attending cyber school is different from being home-schooled. With homeschooling you buy the curriculum and implement it yourself. You are responsible for reporting progress to the state. In a Cyber School, Spring-Ford will provide the curriculum for you! Once enrolled, your student will be assigned teachers their academic subjects. They can video chat, voice chat, or communicate via LMS messages. If a student needs assistance, they can "go to" the office virtually to speak with their teacher. There may be certain designated times that the office is open or their teachers are available to chat.
What does school day look like? Cyber learning offers individualized instruction and flexibility so that students and families can find a schedule that works best for them. This approach makes for day-to-day schedules that are unique for each student, so it’s difficult to pin down exactly what a day in the life of your student is truly like. What might a day look like for your family?
