The Redmond Proficiency Academy already had their first day of classes, and Director Jon Bullock says they are not discouraging using social media to help kids learn.
"We adopted, this year, a bring your own technology policy, which allows students to bring their own technology to school. So students, throughout the school day will have their laptops or their phones or their tablets. We’re really encouraging students to integrate technology throughout their day."
Bullock says all classes have an online component; where notes from classes, assignments and other information is posted throughout the day.
He says they have 700 students this year in grades six through 12 and they do have room for a few more seniors.
