Weld Re-3J K-12 Innovations

K-12 Innovations
Registration NOW OPEN!

Overview

Weld Re-3J K-12 Innovations provides a unique opportunity for Weld students and families to participate in online learning through  high-quality, standards-based curriculum designed for students to work 100% at home with support from Weld Re-3J teaching staff. Families who choose this online option will continue to be Weld Re-3J students in every aspect. Although we require families to commit to a semester, students may choose to go back to in-person learning in August or January without any disruption to their academic progress.


Attendance Requirements

The Colorado Department of Education requires students enrolled in online schools or programs to meet the same scheduled hours requirements that students at brick-and-mortar schools must meet. Students in grades K-5 spend approximately 480 hours engaged in learning online each semester (approx. 30 hours a week) and 530 hours for secondary students (approx. 35 hours a week). As students work to develop a routine of working online, they will not only achieve more success but also learn more content. Although the nature of an online program allows flexibility, students and families are encouraged to develop a set routine and structured time for learning to ensure students are able to meet the necessary hours for success.

Communication and Support

K-12  Innovations curriculum and instruction is completed 100% online. Students will be supported by Weld Re-3J teachers through email, phone, and video conference sessions on a regular basis but will not be receiving direct instruction from our teachers. Content is delivered through the online platform. At times, parents may need to participate in virtual meetings or phone calls with their child(ren) and teacher(s). In-person appointments can be made by contacting your child’s teacher(s).  


Parents or guardians will also be expected to participate in a virtual K-12 Innovations orientation before their child can begin content. More specific information will be provided to enrolled families by August 10, 2020. Orientations will be provided August 17 through 21.


Code of Conduct

K-12 Innovations students will be held to the same expectations of behavior and academic performance as students who are obtaining their education through the traditional in-person model. School expectations of behavior and academic performance are outlined in the Student/Parent Handbooks.  Please visit our school-specific websites for handbooks at re3j.com. 


All elementary level K-12 Innovations students can participate in before/after school clubs and extracurricular activities if they desire. Middle and high school K-12 Innovations students will be allowed to participate in Weld Central High School and Weld Central Middle School activities such as sports, clubs, performances, etc. in accordance with CHSAA eligibility rules, unless otherwise specified for individual students. Clubs and activities may be limited during the 2020-21 school year due to health restrictions.

Weld Re-3J K-12 Innovations offers supplementary curriculum and online pathways for students in need of intervention, traditional core content instruction, and enrichment. Honors coursework is available for students in grades 6-12 and special or electives such as music, art, physical education, and foreign language are also part of the curriculum.
