Students will engage in a hybrid learning program with 70% of their academic instruction administered through a computer-based on-line learning platform and 30% of their academic/social skill instruction and support provided by an academic counselor/educator at Stafford Jones Learning Institute. Direct instruction in the core content areas of mathematics, science, social studies and language arts will be the foundation for the educational programming and CTE courses. Each student will engage in reading and writing across the content areas.
Students will engage in an online platform called Edgenuity formally known as e2020. Edgenuity is an online platform with blended-learning programs. The curriculum is aligned with the curriculum expectation for Maryland to acquire a standard diploma. It is a self-paced program that will provide learners the opportunity to master the content material. Edgenuity courses, which provide personalized rich-media instruction, are aligned with state, iNACOL, and Common Core standards. It includes subject-area-relevant tasks and activities, formative and summative assessments, and automatic feedback. Students learn narrative, argumentative, and analytical writing, and are shown practical examples of how the material is used in real life.
Elementary school students will engage in the Read-to-Them Program. Read to Them® is a 501 C (3) non-profit organization promoting family literacy. Their mission is to create a culture of literacy in every home. This done by helping schools implement our One School, One Book programs.

Read to Them educates families and schools on the benefits and importance of reading aloud at home. A growing body of research describes the complex and permanent effects of reading aloud. Children who are read to learn to read more easily and become better readers. Literacy skills provide the basis for a lifetime of learning and productivity.
