A Delaney Middle School student comments that,

"ONE THING I REALLY LIKE IS THE AVAILABILITY THAT TEACHERS HAVE. SO WE HAVE FLEX TIME AND THEY ARE AVAILABLE THERE TO HELP YOU IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND SOMETHING.”

In the Anderson High personalized learning program,

Students determine the time, place and pace of their learning. Students choose from a menu of learning goals in a computer adaptive learning platform and have control over how to complete what they need to complete.

Because the program is available online, students can choose to login outside of school hours to complete their work and are often documented completing minor and major milestones in early morning hours.

Teachers use log files, as well as learning outcome data, to consult with students about their progress and learning goals.
