Welcome to r-7 Online Academy

The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District believes that online high school courses provide new opportunities in the delivery of instruction for students. R7 Online is a web-based platform which began in Fall 2008 with three courses. Online high school courses provide new opportunities in the delivery of instruction for students. R7 Online now offers over 20 courses for Lee’s Summit students and qualifying students in Jackson County.

These courses are designed with Lee’s Summit curriculum and are taught by certified LSR7 teachers. A variety of instructional materials are utilized to deliver the content including print and online texts, video and audio, discussion boards, and more. All courses are delivered using the Schoology software platform.

The course curriculum is consistent with the regular school program; however, teaching is conducted online with the teacher physically separated from the students. Students work independently and at various times of the day or week. Teachers communicate with students through virtual platforms and email. Students enrolled in an R7 Online course are expected to keep up with assignments and follow the guidelines in their High School Handbook. The students’ counselors work collaboratively with the online instructors to provide a support system for enrolled students.

Technology Requirements

All students taking an R7 Online course must have internet access; the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District does not provide access to the internet for students enrolled in online courses. For specific technical requirements, please click HERE
