A Typical Kindergarten Day At FLEX Online School?

Our school day schedule is founded on flexibility. We have some time that is structured and scheduled during the week. For the rest of the time, the family and student decide when and where they spend their “school” time. 

Some kids and families like a structured schedule, some like to do things differently each day. At FLEX you can do whatever works best for you and your child to engage in learning.

For kindergarten, we offer live sessions each day. Sessions consist of the whole class, a small group, or individual meetings with students. Although optional, participation is highly encouraged.  

There are a variety of ways to schedule your day. Families can choose to work on lessons in the morning, afternoon, evenings, and/or weekends. The rest of the day is yours to plan as you see fit. You decide!

In Person Meetups

Teachers periodically hold optional in-person meetups for students at our school location and at local parks and libraries. During the 2020-2021 school year and the current 2021-2022 school year, our school location has been at Tumwater Middle School. We are excited to be at our new location next year for the 2022-2023 school year at the Capital Center!

What Curriculum Does FLEX Use?

Our FLEX Online School teachers deliver Florida Virtual for the K-5 curriculum. Find more information on the FLEX Elementary Curriculum Information webpage

All classroom instruction and assessments are aligned to BSD Learning Targets

Curriculum will cover material in support of the same learning goals that students in a physical classroom encounter. However, the activities and methods for achieving those goals may be different. For example, a mix of real-time and video instruction could be paired with projects that students choose in order to learn and demonstrate their knowledge of what they’ve learned.

“The math and reading live lessons are the best. My kid learns so much from the small group lessons! He also loves to meet his teacher live. It has been really effective.”
