Dukes Digital Academy

2020/2021 School Restart

Remote Learning Option 

Students that are choosing the remote learning option for the 2020/2021 school year will be enrolled into the Dukes Digital Academy. The Digital Academy will be using the Acellus Learning Accelerator as the online learning platform for the 2020/2021 school year. This program is fully online and is a self-guided learning management system. Students’ attendance and participation will be monitored by the Digital Academy Facilitators.

Acellus uses video-based lessons with adaptive technology to accelerate learning. This program utilizes instructional techniques that fill in student learning gaps. The technology identifies deficiencies in students’ learning and adapts instruction to align to student needs. The competency-based instruction allows students to progress as soon as they demonstrate mastery of the content.

Please keep in mind that the Acellus course options may differ from the options provided by Marlington Local Schools. The Acellus course options can be found using the following link: https://www.acellus.com/for-your-school/#acellus-courses

Student’s that are participating in the online option through Dukes Digital Academy will work completely at home and are expected to complete all activities and assignments for each course they are enrolled in. Dukes Digital Academy will follow the 2020/2021 Marlington Local School District calendar.

If you would like to choose this option for your child, please complete the Google form found on the district website by August 1, 2020. Once your option has been selected, you will be contacted to complete the enrollment process. Specific questions about the program can be directed to Ms. Stanley, [email protected].
