NEWS & EVENTS
Please click here for a letter from our administration regarding our continued closure.
We at Chancellor Academy hope you and your families are doing well during this difficult and unconventional time. After reviewing the current situation, Chancellor Academy will not be re-opening prior to our spring break, which will run from April 10th - April 17th. We will continue with delivering work via virtual Flexible Instruction and hard-copy materials being sent home based on student needs. After spring break, the Flexible Instruction Plan, online with Google Classroom and work being sent home, will resume on Monday, April 20th unless there is a decision by government officials to re-open conventional schools, which does not appear likely. Counselors will still be available via e-mail daily from 8am-2pm, and will continue conducting phone sessions on their assigned days. We will be sure to update families as more information becomes available. Should you require any assistance, we are only a message or call away.
Thank you, and be well.

Exciting New Reward Plan For Flexible Learning Participation!
As Chancellor Academy has always done, we seek to motivate student behavior through structure and various rewards systems. We understand that the lack of structure involved with remote instruction may lead to some challenges at home in getting students to log their attendance and complete work. We will be offering rewards for exceptional progress when we return to school, but as we know, this reward may be too long term to be effectively motivating. Therefore, we would like to offer short-term rewards through online means to help motivate increased work production. We will communicate with students through Google Classroom and email to set the expectations and the reward. We are proposing a reward of a STEAM, Spotify or iTunes e-card, which are online gift cards that students can use to purchase online gaming or music products. Many of our students are highly-motivated by these outlets. If other options become available, we will let you know. If students meet our set behavioral expectations for the day or week, they will be emailed an e-card of their choosing.
Students will be rewarded for work completion and attendance, but in general, we want to remind you of the daily expectations of students during this time. It is imperative that all students complete work and mark themselves present each day so that they can receive course credit. Remember, these are school days, not vacation days, and absences and lack of work completion could have significant consequences. Please help us in sending this message to our students.
1. For students participating in our online educational program through Google Classroom, they are to reply to Chris's daily "Good Morning" email at 10am each day to mark themselves present. They are then to begin logging into each of their Google classes and completing the day's assignments. In order to receive credit for the day, students must mark themselves present AND complete work.
2. For students who do not have adequate access to technology, they are receiving paper schoolwork mailed to their homes. Students must still report themselves present each day either by calling the school or replying to Chris's email. We have added the new expectation that they are to send a picture of their completed work (this can be done from their cell phones) to the appropriate teacher (For example, a picture of the math worksheet completed for the day would be emailed to the math teacher). If you have questions about this or need a teacher email address please feel free to reach out to me or Chris.
If you would like for your son/daughter to participate in this program, please reply to this email with your consent.
We will email you separately with this week's goals.
We will continue to strive to impart success in our students no matter the location!
