Moon Cyber Education Program

Moon Area School District will launch the Moon Cyber Education Program (MCEP) for the 2016-2017 school year. The program will be housed in the high school and provide students the flexibility, curriculum, and classroom support they need in order to succeed.

Support

Moon Area School District (MASD) faculty will teach the online courses. Students will receive feedback, assistance, and clarification on coursework. Teachers are trained not only in their subject areas, but also in the cyber software, PLATO. MASD currently has access to approximately 105 courses from the software provider. 

Students enrolled in MCEP will be provided a laptop to complete their coursework. Students who complete their studies through MCEP will also have the benefit of receiving a Moon Area School District diploma upon graduation. 

In addition, a full-time MCEP coordinator will oversee the program and act as a useful resource for cyber students. 

Flexibility

Each Student is different. With MCEP, students can find an instruction plan that best suits their needs. MCEP provides the following options to accommodate the modern student:

Full-Time Cyber: In full-time cyber, students have the ability to learn, work, and test from home.

Full-Time Attending: For those who wish to pursue a cyber education method but find themselves more productive attending school regularly, students can participate in the full-time attending option. In this option, students will complete all online coursework in the high school each day. 

Blended Learning: Students that prefer cyber education for core classes but also wish to attend the high school regularly can elect the blended learning option. 

Curriculum

MCEP provides exceptional instruction to students in the core academic disciplines such as mathematics, science, English/language arts, and social studies. Elective courses are available to students through participation in the mainstream classrooms in the high school.
