Beginning with the 2016-2017 academic year the School District of Solon Springs has partnered with Connections Learning to provide the Solon Springs Virtual Program. Through this partnership students may become full time online or combination online/onsite students of the School District of Solon Springs. With online instructors provided by Connections Elementary Students will participate in Academic Core Courses (English/Language Arts/Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies) and may choose from further educational opportunities like Art or other Elective Courses. Middle and High School Students will work with a Program Coordinator from Solon Springs School to select courses that fulfill the appropriate academic standards at each grade level and credits toward graduation for high school courses.
Students may also elect to participate in a blended Virtual/Onsite program that allows them to take classes onsite at the Solon Springs School combined with selected Virtual Courses through the Solon Springs Virtual Program. Students in these programs take some courses in the regular school/classroom setting and complete the remaining annual course/credit requirements within the Solon Springs Virtual Program.
All Solon Springs Virtual Program Students are monitored locally by a Program Manager and a Program Assistant who remain in contact with families regarding students’ progress through their programs. Additionally, as students in the Solon Springs Virtual Program are a part of the Solon Springs School District these students have the same opportunities as all Solon Springs School Students and are invited to participate in class field trips and school sponsored extracurricular activities.
Other virtual/online classes maybe available based upon parent/student request. The virtual/online options are available to all Solon Springs school age students including those open enrolled in Solon Springs as well as Home-based students.

To better communicate with parents the School District of Solon Springs has an addition to Family Access called Skylert. Skylert is a message system that will give parents important school information by phone, email or SMS texting.
Skylert allows parents to enter phone numbers, e-mail and SMS texting information into Family Access. If there is a mass phone notification, the new phone numbers entered by the parent/guardian will be notified in addition to the phone numbers that have already been provided to the schools. For example, parents can enter the phone number of their day care provider or an emergency contact, such as grandparents, to also receive messages from the School District of Solon Springs.
You may access Skylert by the following:
1. Log into Family Access. You will find the Skylert link is in the same area as the Grade book, Attendance, and Schedule links.
2. Click on the Skylert link and a page will display all phone numbers and in what situation those phone numbers will be called. As always, should you need to make a phone number change for your child(ren), please contact the individual school where your child(ren) attend.
We trust that you will find Skylert helpful in keeping important people in your child’s life informed of important information.
