Acellus for Virtual Learning

Partnering with Acellus for the Optimal
Virtual School Program


The Acellus Virtual School Partner (VSP) Program is an initiative of Acellus Academy to aid public school districts in starting up virtual school programs. For already established virtual schools, the VSP Program is designed to help optimize the effectiveness of the education provided, and increase student enrollments. One of the primary goals of this program is to help public school districts keep as well as re-capture students that are within their district boundaries of enrollment.

Under this program, Districts can offer students the option of earning credits online in order to yield higher graduation rates, and expand course options for students. Since the students remain enrolled in the school district, they are able to graduate with a high school diploma issued by the local district, and the district can retain state funding for those students. District administrators and teachers receive access to monitor student performance and engage with students.

The Virtual Classroom

Educating students outside of the brick-and-mortar school environment is becoming an ever growing need. Providing an Independent Study program to students studying from home enables students to still achieve their academic goals, while allowing them the flexibility to choose where and when they study. Acellus affords students the opportunity to study from home on their own schedule, without compromising on academic rigor, standards and quality. This gives students an educational pathway that best enables them to fully realize their academic potential.

Comprehensive Course Offerings K-12

Acellus provides standards-based courses K-12 in mathematics, social studies, science, language arts and reading. Courses are also available in the areas of STEM, Career and Technical Education, College Board approved AP courses, ESL, and other electives.

Leveraging Teachers to Do More Teaching

Acellus is designed to reduce the work load of the teachers – doing much of the mundane work automatically – so that teachers can spend their time where it's needed most.

LIVE MONITORING

Through the Acellus platform schools are able to easily monitor student performance and achievement. With the Live Class Monitor, a single teacher can keep track of student progress in multiple subjects simultaneously. The live monitor provides real-time data to alert teachers when students are struggling in a lesson. Teachers can see the concept the student is working on, each answer inputted, and the intervention Acellus is providing to that student. Through video conferencing and live chat, teachers can interact with students to ensure they understanding difficult concepts. Students can also reach out to a teacher with questions at any time via the Messaging system. Additionally, Acellus will send a message to the local teacher if a student fails an exam or if extra assistance is suggested.

AUTOMATIC GRADING

Student work is graded automatically and tabulated in the Acellus Gradebook. Actual time worked is logged and calculated by the system in a report that can be easily generated when needed. Student report cards and transcripts of completed courses are accessible at any time by teachers and administrators at the local school.

ADD CUSTOM LESSONS

Acellus provides a rigorous backbone for the virtual environment, but teachers can also supplement the courses with customized material as desired. Special Lessons designed by the teachers can be uploaded to the system, and the grades integrated into the overall Acellus Gradebook.

Ensuring Academic Integrity
in the Online World

Ensuring the academic integrity of a virtual, independent studies program can be challenging for the teachers and staff involved. Exams can be set for proctoring to make certain tests are completed by the enrolled student. All actions done by students are recorded in the Acellus system, including every time a student logs in, each answer inputted, and every grade achieved. Many additional safeguards have been incorporated into the Acellus system to prevent students from cheating themselves out of getting an education that will empower them for future success.
