BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma -

Broken Arrow Public Schools announced that it is expanding its full-time virtual education program to elementary and middle school students.

The program, called Virtual Academy, allows students to do all of their coursework online. School leaders say they have had success with the program and see potential for more growth.

“We’ve had incredible success with our Virtual Academy curriculum for our high school students,” Broken Arrow Public Schools Associate Superintendent of Instruction Karla Dyess said. “Upon the conclusion of distance learning during the global pandemic, we realized many of our younger students truly enjoyed receiving their education in a virtual format. So our team has tirelessly worked to be able to provide an additional option of learning for our students.”

Students in the program can work full time online, or have a blended enrollment with some studies done at the schools. Online elementary curriculum includes English, social studies, math, science, and interactive courses like art and physical education.

“We know all students have different learning styles, and we have a commitment to meet them where they are,” Dyess said. “I’m excited to see how our revamped virtual program transforms the face of public education.”
