Personalized Learning Plan
Students learn best when they have a personalized learning plan—lessons match their personal interests and abilities as well as their learning modalities. The mission of Ohio Connections Academy (OCA) is to help each student maximize his or her potential and meet the highest performance standards through a uniquely individualized learning program.
At Ohio Connections Academy, each student receives individualized instruction, including lessons tailored to that student’s academic strengths and weaknesses. This is the Personalized Performance Learning® (PPL) approach—a dynamic process that begins by evaluating each student’s strengths and needs. Teachers and counselors are then able to develop focused, customized approaches that work for the student along with the curriculum—all year long.
When help is needed, teachers may modify instruction strategies or lessons, provide meaningful ways to practice skills, and offer helpful resources. They may arrange to work with a student in a small group or even one-on-one. This personal attention empowers students in our Ohio online school to do their best and to achieve their goals.
Collaborating on Personalized Learning Plans to Provide Even Greater Support
OCA teachers work together closely and talk regularly. They share best practices, subject matter tips, teaching methods, and more to better build individualized instruction for their students. For families working with multiple teachers, these educators can coordinate efforts to meet the student’s needs via customized personalized learning plans.
Connected to Students and Families
The bonds that teachers at OCA build with their students are deep and strong. Often, teachers get to know the entire family well. These relationships enable teachers to make truly meaningful, life-changing connections with their students.
