Insight School Of Ohio Approved By Department Of Education

COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Insight School of Ohio announced today that the new online public school (eSchool) was approved by the Ohio Department of Education to begin serving students in the 2013-14 school year.  The school will offer students an innovative education through engaging digital learning experiences and individualized instruction. 

Insight School of Ohio intends to offer grades 6-12 next year and expand to serve elementary grades in subsequent years. 

Insight School of Ohio is governed by the Buckeye Urban Education Solutions (BUES), a non-profit board comprised of Ohio parents and community leaders.  BUES is responsible for establishing the school's policies and overseeing its academic, operational and financial performance.

Aaron Ockerman, Chairman of BUES, said, "We're very pleased our school received approval from the Ohio Department of Education and we are excited about offering a unique public education program in Ohio to help reach students where they are.  We believe our school will make a difference, especially for struggling students.  Our school will use high quality digital learning programs and skilled teachers to effectively deliver individualized instruction that meets students needs, and gives them confidence to succeed."

The school was authorized earlier this year by the Buckeye Community Hope Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation that sponsors over 40 community public schools throughout Ohio.   The organization's mission is to create and support new opportunities in housing, education and community outreach for seniors, struggling families, underserved students and misdirected youth.

Insight School of Ohio will use the award-winning curriculum, technology and school services provided by K12 Inc. (NYSE: LRN), America's largest provider of proprietary curriculum and online and blended school programs for students in kindergarten through high school.

As a public school, Insight School of Ohio will be open to all eligible students in the state, however its emphasis will be on serving academically at-risk students who have struggled in traditional schools. The school's instructional model and academic strategies will focus on putting every student on a path to earning their high school diploma. 

Students will receive an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) that fits each child's unique strengths, weaknesses, learning styles and aptitudes.  Each student's ILP will map out a multi-year personalized learning strategy through a collaborative team process between the student, parent, teachers, guidance counselor, and advisor.

Through the ILP, first year students will be engaged in a fully synchronous learning model using digital courses and tools, and will gradually shift to a more asynchronous schedule to support the goal of creating independent learners.  Insight School of Ohio will use an "academy" approach where students will be placed into a Middle School Academy, Freshmen Academy, or High School Academy, with the goal of helping students graduate college and career ready.

Teachers at Insight School of Ohio will provide instruction through digital learning technology and interact with students regularly.  They will also meet with students at locations across the state for one-on-one or small group instruction, remediation and interventions, testing and assessment, and school activities. 

The school plans to locate its administrative headquarters in Columbus, OH.
