Welcome to r-7 Online Academy
The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District believes that online courses provide new opportunities in the delivery of instruction for students. R7 Online is a web-based platform that began in Fall 2008 with three secondary courses. R7 Online now offers over 80 courses K-12, for Lee’s Summit students and qualifying students in Jackson County. Our online elementary is now a MOCAP provider and can offer instruction to qualifying students state-wide.
These courses are designed with Lee’s Summit curriculum and are taught by Missouri-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 asychronous 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.
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
