Although remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic became the “norm” during the 2020-21 school year, Clovis Online School was ahead of the curve in developing the tools to ensure its students are able to maintain a connection with their teacher that allow them to thrive. Specifically, through individually-graded assignments, onsite counseling services, the flexibility to adapt to unique learning styles, and what is essentially one-on-one relationship between students and teachers, Clovis Online School is able to combine the benefits of a traditional school with the flexibility of online learning, while at the same time providing students with specialized attention.
Clovis Online School teachers possess California Teaching Credentials, have vast subject area expertise, and a passion for teaching. Our teachers are well-versed in communication skills and computer competency. At the core, all Clovis Online School teachers embody the understanding of teaching as a collaborative process, rather than just the delivery of instruction and assessment of student work.
Shortly after students enroll in Clovis Online School, our teachers and staff get to know each student's goals and needs. They use this knowledge to enhance curriculum and instruction. Our students benefit from individual academic plans created by our counselors, with input from the students and help from parents during orientation meeting. These plans help individualize each student's experience at Clovis Online School.
Our on-site teachers regularly consult with each of their students, providing differentiated instruction tailored to maximize personalized online learning. They provide academic and emotional support that allows students to be successful while progressing at their own pace. We understand that the goal of education is to encourage students to discover and develop their interests, talents and natural gifts. This approach inspires our students to become active learners who think independently, communicate effectively and see themselves as members of a global community. Our teachers and our program give students the necessary skills to become self-directed adults who are confident about life directions and/or career paths.
We understand that school should be a partnership. Teachers, parents and students all work closely together to make up the learning team. Parents are given the tools to communicate with their child’s teachers, are encouraged to attend all meetings, and have real-time access to their child’s progress in all courses.
