How it Works

Camas Connect Academy has a variety of rigorous and engaging content to help our students reach their goals.  Our students are expected to complete work on a daily basis to ensure progress in their coursework.  We recommend a regular learning schedule at home supported by a quiet place for students to interact with our staff and other students.  Here is an overview of our academic programs in more detail.

Elementary Programs- Students in grades K-5 will have the opportunity to receive live instruction with their teacher and peers through synchronous learning.  Teachers will also host small group or one-on-one meetings throughout the school day.  The curriculum is aligned to state standards and used all over the country.  BookShark curriculum offers an engaging platform, paper/pencil books, parent resources, teacher resources, and on-demand learning for K-5 students.  Students will also work out of Google Classroom and may pick up any supplies/printed materials from the CCA Office.

Middle School Programs- Our middle school students access core content through Edgenuity, electives through eDynamics (built into Edgenuity), and may also take band/choir at their resident school.  Teachers have 1 hour daily of office hours to provide support, tutoring, and progress monitoring.  Students work at their own pace so long as they finish their coursework by the end of the semester.  Daily progress and engagement are expected.  Students will meet with an advisory teacher every other week for check-in on progress and communicate weekly with their grading teachers.  Drop-in support will be available Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at the Zellerbach Administration Center.  Field trips and virtual activities will also be available throughout the year.

High School Programs- High School students in CCA access core content through Edgenuity, electives through eDynamics, and may request to take zero or first-period electives at CHS or DHS.  We support our high school students through an advisory teacher who conducts live Zoom sessions to review progress, support coursework, and connect students with resources.  Students work at their own pace as long as they finish their courses by the end of the semester.  Daily progress and engagement are expected.  Running start is available for 11th and 12th-grade students.  Grading teachers will have posted office hours where students may meet up to get support in coursework.  Throughout the year we will have field trips and virtual activities available as well as drop-in support at the Zellerbach Administration Center.

Technology– All CCA students will receive a Camas School District Chromebook for the time they are enrolled in CCA.  They will need to return the computer to our main office if they drop CCA.  CCA students have full access to the Camas School District technology department and we have a dedicated support person who handles all of our technology issues.  Please visit the CSD Technology site and look through resources.
