Flex Academies ONE, a leader in safe, quality online enrichment, has teamed up with three Parent Teacher Organizations (PTOs) in the Rye City School District to offer an enrichment program tailored to the needs of the district’s schools. The sponsoring PTOs are with Midland, Osborn, and Milton schools.
The Rye City School District Flex Academies ONE program takes place after students complete their distance learning school day. Online enrichment sessions are held Monday through Friday, from 3:15 until 5:30 p.m., until the end of June.
The specialized program was the idea of Osborn School PTO After School Clubs Liaison Gillian Scott.
“We wanted a way to keep our school community intact,” said Scott. “Our kids need to see their classmates and have the chance to laugh and participate in activities with them. So we reached out to Flex to see if there was a way to create an enrichment experience for our schools, and they were able to make it happen, with an online platform just for us.”
“Flex Academies was already providing on-site enrichment at two of three elementary schools in the Rye City School District, so they know and trust us,” said Flex Academies CEO and founder Joshua Chernikoff. “We wanted to help them help their homebound parents, who are juggling work and overseeing their kids’ learning too. The online enrichment program we’ve designed for Rye City gives those parents a break to get their own work done, while keeping kids happy and engaged in fun learning.”
The partnership enables socialization among Rye City District students, while they nurture their passion for subjects like dance, musical theater, chess, gymnastics, and many others. The instructors are all screened and background-checked by Flex Academies ONE. An online coordinator is present in every session to make sure that only authorized individuals access the space, and the coordinator is there for technical support as well.
