Trivium Charter School introduces FLEX Days at our Lompoc and Santa Barbara Learning Centers! In addition to our 2 on-campus days per week, students will now be able to sign up for various electives and academic support classes on a 3rd day, called FLEX Day. Classes will include a range of math and language arts support and supplementation, music, drama, engineering/coding, foreign language, and study hall, varying by semester. High School will also have a CTE (Career Technical Education) option available. All on-campus days are offered from 9am to 3:15pm. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or if you would like to discuss this exciting expansion of our Personalized Learning Public Charter School.
Is this a third ACE Day?
While FLEX is another day of classes being offered at a Trivium learning center, it is not an additional ACE Day. ACE Days will continue to be offered 2 days a week, providing academic instruction by credentialed Trivium teachers in subjects like science and history. FLEX Day classes will consist of non-ACE Day subjects and support for math and language arts.
What day of the week will be FLEX Day?
For the 2018-2019 school year, FLEX Day will be held on Wednesday at both our Lompoc and Santa Barbara learning centers.
What are the FLEX Day hours?
Classes will be offered starting at 9am and ending at 315pm, in four sessions, with a morning break and a 45 minute lunch.
Session 1: 9am-1015am
15 minute break
45 minute lunch
Session 3: 1230pm-145pm
Session 4: 145pm-315pm
Can students attend just part of the FLEX Day?
Yes. Students will have the opportunity to sign up for classes at the beginning of each semester and may sign up for just those they are interested in, or for the entire day.
What classes will be offered on FLEX Day?
Families can expect the same type of high-quality, project-based, interactive, lessons our ACE Days offer, only in different areas. There will be classes such as math and language arts support and supplementation, music, drama, engineering/coding, foreign language, and study hall. Classes will vary by semester. High School will also have a CTE (Career Technical Education) option available.
What grade levels may attend FLEX Days?
We will have classes for all students in grades K-12.
Will all classes be open to all grade levels?
Available classes may vary by grade level.
Will families need to increase the workload on non-ACE/FLEX Days to stay on pace in their independent study subjects, to participate in FLEX Day?
FLEX Day classes will not take away from the time students have to complete their independent study subjects, so the workload on the remaining 2 days will not need to be increased. Instead, FLEX Day math and language arts classes will provide opportunities for students to accomplish some topics in an interactive group setting, and/or accomplish some of their independent study classwork in a study hall if they choose that class as part of their FLEX Day. Parents will be provided with a detailed description of topics covered during FLEX classes in order to adjust their students’ independent study plan.
Is this a drop-in program, where students can choose whether or not to attend each week?
In order to plan ahead and provide for the high quality, interactive lessons we ask that students sign up at the beginning of the semester for those classes they would like to attend consistently. We do, of course, understand if things change and you have to stop attending FLEX Days and will accommodate late sign-ups if space in the class allows.
If my student attends FLEX, what do I enter on his/her learning log for that day?
This will depend on your child’s personalized learning plan.
What if my student is in a Connect class and it is scheduled during the FLEX Day?
They will be able to attend their Connect class from the FLEX Day.
Does my child need to bring their math/ela curriculum if they sign up for the corresponding FLEX Day supplemental class?
This would depend on the FLEX Day class they are participating in.
Will students be graded on their FLEX Day classwork?
This will also depend on the FLEX Day class they are participating in, and their grade level.
