Do I need to own a computer to attend?
No. Each student will be loaned a computer system (including a laptop computer, printer, and software) to support the learning process. Middle and high school students receive laptops to use while attending Agora Cyber Charter School, along with a scanner and fax/printer. These items must be returned when the student leaves the school. Agora Cyber Charter School will arrange for technical support and troubleshooting for these systems. Your family will need to secure an Internet service provider, and Agora will provide a stipend for the cost of the Internet service. The stipend is disbursed twice each school year.
What computer skills do I need?
The parent/learning coach needs to have basic computer skills. Use of the computer is an important part of the program, but in the early grades it is mostly the parent (or other responsible adult) who interacts with the computer. The program is user-friendly.
What about tablets and other mobile devices?
Technology’s portability is increasing and many families have iPads and other Android tablets or phones. We understand the need for our systems to be ready for the future and to support mobile devices. At this time, we do not guarantee that our programs will work with mobile devices. Mobile support is in the roadmap and will be supported in the near future.
