Student Success Program

How We Help Students Succeed

Ohio Digital Learning School (ODLS) believes in unlocking every student’s potential. No matter the circumstances of the past, whether students have experienced frustration in failing classes, struggled to keep up, felt unsafe at school, or dealt with personal problems, our approach can help them succeed and thrive.

Individualized Approach

Every student has unique challenges and ways of learning. In order to address each student’s needs, we give students a benchmark test to assess their skills in various subjects. From there, we place students in appropriate courses, identify strengths and areas for improvement, and chart their progress.

Students take a career interest inventory. Based on their results, an Individualized Career Plan is created to guide them on potential career choices.

Ohio-certified teachers tailor their instruction to each student as well as provide help outside the classroom. In coordination with our experienced Family Support Advisor and counselors, our teachers help students get motivated, set goals, and stay on track for graduation.

Our program also helps map out career and higher education goals by offering a college and career planning tool and personalized support.

Structured for Success with Personalized Support

Our Social and Emotional Learning program helps ensure students are ready to learn by increasing their self-confidence, resilience, and interpersonal skills.

In addition, our Family Academic Support Team includes a licensed social worker and other family support personnel to help students stay on track through early interventions, wraparound supports, and engagement strategies.

These unique programs strive to ensure students are ready to learn by helping them work through non-academic issues, with sensitivity to the realities of their personal and family situations.

Engaging Tools and Powerful Resources

We want to make sure students receive the personalized attention to help them perform at their grade level. The ODLS academic team’s remediation program identifies students’ specific skill deficiencies and develops individualized remediation plans to address skill gaps. We then prescribe a personalized plan for each student, use a proven model of instruction, and track and analyze performance. In case a student needs to recover a credit, our credit recovery courses are designed to efficiently and effectively make that happen.

We couple proven teaching techniques with interactive learning to help students feel engaged, empowered, and challenged. By incorporating audio, video, live chat, printed materials, and group interactions into the curriculum, our students can learn in the ways that work best for them. Our teachers use interactive virtual classrooms to provide one-to-one student–teacher meetings and live instructional sessions.

In all, we believe this holistic approach gives every student—including those who have fallen behind or are in danger of falling behind—the best chance for success in school and in life.
