  • 2021-2022 Student Handbook

    The 2020-2021 student handbook is available here for review. This document is fluid and, as such, is subject to change. 

     

    Application Process

    Parents interested in JASA must first fill out the Open Enrollment application linked here. After applying, families will receive an email with further instructions.

  • Curriculum

    For the 2021-2022 school year, JASA secondary curriculum will implement JMCSS curriculum supplemented by Edmentum Courseware. 

    Edmentum is an award-winning computer-based online educational approach based on a single-point “launchpad” concept. Edmentum courseware is a standards-based online learning program based on state-of-the-art teaching approaches with an eye to helping learners be more innovative and productive in their learning and study habits. Over 1 million students and more than 65,000 teachers and administrators use Edmentum Courseware every day.

    Edmentum students are assigned a unique log-in that connects them to an age-appropriate page where they can access relevant instructional materials and related assignments.

    To sample the Edmentum content, follow the steps below:

    • Visit here.
    • Click "Self-Enroll"
    • Enter the course code: cf994c65e801a3ae006b024bf16e69bc
    • Enter the course password: DEMO

     Grades K-5 will utilize current district curriculum that has been converted to a digital format within the LMS by our own certified staff.

  • What is the difference between Virtual, Cyber, and JASA?

    Posted by:

    Virtual and CyberSchool are both gone - JASA is the only non-traditional option for JMCSS students in 2021-2022. JASA is a blend of Virtual and Cyber with asynchronous work and (some) required live class attendance.

  • Will the program remain self-paced?

    Posted by:

    Pacing will be based on mastery. The goal at JASA is to ensure students have mastered content before moving to the next area. This means students will have individualized learning paths that allow for differentiated pacing.
