The Blackhawk Cyber Program began during the 2011-2012 school year for students in Grades 6-12 and then expanded to include students in Grades K-5 in 2016. Blackhawk's Cyber Program continues to improve and expand each school year to make online learning a great option for families in our district!
Our elementary cyber service is built on the Compass Odyssey platform. The program’s lessons are interactive and geared toward the elementary learner. Each lesson in Compass has been hand selected to align with Blackhawk’s curriculum.
Our cyber students in Grades 5-12 use the Edgenuity platform where courses are also customized to align with Blackhawk’s curriculum to make online learning engaging, rigorous, and relevant.
Cyber students are classified as full-time, hybrid, or singleton students. Some enroll in only one cyber course while taking the remainder of his/her courses in the building, some have a mixture of both, and yet others take all of their courses via cyber. Students in Grades 6-12 have the option of completing work in the Cyber Lab located at Blackhawk High School where additional assistance is available. Elementary students are encouraged (but are not required) to use the library, attend field trips, and participate in any or all of the specials classes such as art, music, and physical education.
