Sage Oak Virtual Academy Courses

Dear Families, 
Thank you for your patience and understanding while we got our virtual academy courses, our learning platforms (Clever), and new student emails up and running. 

We experienced unforeseen technological difficulties and staffing changes which contributed to the delay. We are excited to announce that everything is currently up and running! If for any reason you are continuing to experience any issues, please reach out to your teacher and we will work to resolve them immediately.

Strive for 45! 

Did you know that using i-Ready for 45 minutes or more per week in each subject is great practice and can be beneficial?

A majority of our students saw growth last year by using the online lessons as recommended!
