Resource Center Programs
Pivot Charter Schools recognize that students working online and in independent study must have a significant level of independence or support at home in order to be successful. And not all students have that self-motivation, support or independence. Therefore, Pivot has developed a resource center program to support those students in meeting their educational goals using the online curriculum.
Our educational coordinators are available to students in grades 6-12 five days a week from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm. The educational coordinators are available to students in grades K-5 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 12:30 pm until 3:30 pm. During this time teachers provide oversight, monitoring, small group instruction and tutoring.
Students either living beyond a 45-mile radius of the school who cannot attend a resource center program and/or who have proven that they can consistently complete their required work (4 assignments a day with a passing grade) every school day, independently, with assistance from online teachers and weekly check-ins with their assigned Pivot teacher may work online only.
