Welcome to Chinook
The Chinook Cyber School (CCS) was founded in 2009 with course offerings that mainly covered the core curriculum for graduation. Since then, CCS has grown to offer more than 50 courses with classes from ELA and Math to Cow Calf Production and Visual Art. CCS is comprised of a total of 9 teachers; 6 full time and 3 part time. CCS is committed to ensuring quality online education to help supplement students' home based course offerings.
Online learning is a unique learning experience. Some students thrive on the independence and self pacing of online learning. Some students find the time management of an independent learning environment a challenge. CCS courses include target completion dates/times to help students manage their time effectively. Most students who spend the equivalent of 1 hour per school day on course work have little difficulty completing courses within the required time.
I would encourage you to sit with your student as he/she accesses courses so you can see first - hand what the courses look like and to view grades and comments from the teacher.
CCS staff work in cooperation with the student's home school staff. Your student will have every opportunity to be successful with supports put in place by both CCS and the home school. Teachers contact information in the courses and are available via email or phone to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
