Middle School Digital Academy
Each school within Leon County Schools will be offering a digital academy beginning in the fall of 2020. Students enrolled in their schools’ digital academy will receive individualized instruction from their enrolled school using technology, one learning platform, and live lessons. This will allow students and families to maintain association with their assigned school while receiving instruction at home, and remain on the same pacing as face to face instruction. This will give students and families an element of control over time, place, and individual pace/learning style. Course selection will include specific elective choices that adhere to the distance learning model. This will be a semester by semester commitment.
