Offering a quality education to students has always been at the heart of LISA Academy’s mission. In light of the current circumstances, we will be working in cooperation with the Arkansas Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to provide options to families for the 2020-2021 school year. If schools are allowed to open for in-person attendance, LISA Academy will follow all directives from the DESE and the Arkansas Department of Health in opening schools to students. Even if guidelines allow for in-person instruction to resume, we plan to offer virtual learning options for families as well.
The leadership team has been evaluating resources and will continue to develop options for providing onsite, blended, and distance learning options for LISA Academy students in the 2020-21 school year. Important components of our plans include purchasing a new high-quality online learning platform, additional Chromebooks for students, and additional technology for teachers to utilize in delivering content either in person or virtually. Families in need of internet services will be provided hot spots. We are committed to providing the best possible education for students, whether families choose an online, in person, or blended option for their students.
Once we have further guidance from the DESE and other state level authorities, we will contact LISA families through a survey to determine your preference for your student’s education in the fall. We will remain flexible in our plans and will provide you with updates as more guidance is provided. Please be assured that your student’s education with LISA Academy will move forward and will remain our top priority. Thank you for the trust you have in LISA Academy. Together we are mighty!
