Yes, they are eligible to participate in all sports, clubs, and activities.
Students in the Cougar Academy have an individualized schedule that may be made up of the following options:
Students in our online program have full access to district resources including teachers, administrators, guidance counselors, athletics, performing arts and instrumental lessons. Students have access to the following instructional technology programs depending on grade level: Reading Eggs, Ed City Math, Study Island, World Book Online, Brain Pop and Google Apps for Education.
Course instructional materials are provided to access the courses via the Internet. The courses are provided to Palmyra Area School District residents tuition free. Cougar Academy students will receive a laptop, printer/scanner/fax, and reimbursement of Internet service charges for the school year.
Although the ability to access the coursework and complete assignments on-line is a vital component of this educational program, the district believes the access to a certified teacher is just as important. Therefore, students work in a direct partnership with a Palmyra Area School District teacher and learning coach using e-mail, phone, and/or instant messaging.
The courses are designed to allow for a student to work at his or her own pace; however, the student’s teacher and learning coach will monitor progress and offer assistance as needed to complete the coursework in a timely manner. All grades will be kept in PowerSchool so that parents and students can check grades online.
