The Flagstaff Online Academy is an online K-4 school in the Flagstaff Unified School District. Teachers will deliver live and recorded instruction to students in an online environment, as well as offer support and feedback through formative and summative assessment and virtual meetings. Teachers work with students through Zoom in large and small groups.
Students enrolled in the Flagstaff Online Academy will experience live Zoom instruction with Thomas teachers and will interact online with their classmates throughout the academic day. Lessons and content are aligned with FUSD curriculum guides and are consistent with the live lessons occurring at Thomas Elementary school. Coursework is a mixture of online and offline work.
Students participating in the Remote learning classroom for the 2021-2022 school year will be expected to follow the FUSD school calendar including holidays, early release, and any snow day delays or cancellations. Daily attendance will be taken, tardies will be marked, and the school hours will be observed 8:35 a.m. to 3:25 p.m.
Participation in the Thomas Online Academy requires a connection to the internet and a dedicated device to access course content and instruction. Flagstaff Unified School District will provide an iPad on a check-out basis to all enrolled students.
The Thomas Online Academy has met capacity for the 1st quarter of the school year. We will continue to monitor applications for the online academy and will place students on a waitlist. Students will be accepted to the program when we have availability in our classes.
