Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — A new online public school wants to give kids in Louisiana the choice of having complete one on one interaction with teachers.
Connections Academy in Baton Rouge is an online public charter school which accepts students from kindergarten through high school.
Teachers want to help kids learn better, by having them take tests to determine their academic strengths and weaknesses.
Teachers then take the results, and teach kids with guidance through online classes and chat rooms.
"That's really what makes us the most special, we do not wait for time to pass or for some artificial warning signal to come up, we are in constant monitoring mode with our students." - said Principal Caroline Wood
