Full-time online learning offered by Pioneer Academy in Carson City 1-12 | Carson City Nevada News

For the upcoming 2022-2023 school year, the Carson City School District is continuing all full-time online education for elementary, middle, and high school students on one consolidated site: Pioneer Academy 1-12.

Pioneer Academy 1-12 is a consortium of three schools. Pioneer Online Elementary School will serve students in grades one through five, Pioneer Online Middle School will serve students in grades six through eight, and Pioneer High School, which is already a fully accredited high school serving students in grades nine through eight. Twelfth graders in the traditional onsite and online options, will continue to serve all full-time online high school students in the Carson City School District.

All families wishing to pursue (or enroll in) full-time online learning must complete a Pioneer Academy 1-12 application on their website. Pioneer Academy 1-12 has a limited number of places available for all three levels (Elementary, Intermediate and Senior). Due to this limited space, CCDS is asking all interested families to complete and submit English applications or Spanish applications by Friday, April 22, 2022 in order to be considered. Requests received after April 22 will be placed on a first-come, first-served waiting list.

The full-time online learning model offered by Pioneer Academy is a 5-day-a-week commitment. School days and times will reflect those of students learning full-time, 5 days a week, on-site, in-person. All tests and assessments for full-time online learners will be provided in person at the Pioneer Academy 1-12 campus.

Once enrolled, Pioneer Academy 1-12 will be the student’s assigned school for the year. In order for students enrolled in the full-time online learning model to revert to the district’s on-site in-person learning model, families will need to request a waiver from their assigned/zoned physical school.

Due to the unique challenges of online learning, CCSD has determined that students and families will be best served in a consolidated location with faculty and staff who can focus their efforts on the needs of full-time online families. . Since Pioneer Academy 1-12 serves all full-time online learners, parents will have a single point of contact, regardless of their child’s current grade level. In addition, the consolidated site provides a unified teaching team for online learning, as well as a single administrative and office team.
