CLARK COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT’S NEVADA LEARNING ACADEMY @ CCSD KICKS OF INAUGURAL YEAR WITH MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAM
(Las Vegas) —Online learning through the Clark County School District is no longer just for high school students.
The inaugural year of Nevada Learning Academy @ CCSD’s middle school program will commence on the first day of school next week, Aug. 25. A full curriculum of middle school and high school level courses will be available, along with already existing high school level courses. With a growing demand for online education, the middle school is geared up to provide the necessary CCSD courses for a wide range of students, including those who are professional performers, travel for sports, face, have health issues, or simply need a more flexible schedule.
“We have wonderful programs that give high school and middle school students a variety of options at CCSD,” said Jesse Welsh, academic manager of CCSD’s Innovative Learning Environments. “This will be our inaugural year for the middle school program, and there are some great things in store. Whether they just like the flexibility of online classes, or may be unable to attend more traditional classes, they can turn to online learning to meet their educational goals.”
