MAUMEE, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–After two years of questions and distractions, students at the Ohio Digital Learning School (ODLS), an online public school serving 9-12 students statewide, will celebrate its graduates with an online commencement ceremony this week.
ODLS is a credit recovery school, which provides a high level of personalized academic, social, and emotional support to help students not only catch up, but excel in school. The ceremony will take place virtually on June 3rd at 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and full details can be found at ODLS’ Facebook page.
“Many families in Ohio have struggled over the past two years, and our students were no exception. I am so proud of all that these students have accomplished. There’s no doubt it’s been a challenge, and I look forward to what they decide to do next,” said ODLS director Kate Harkless.
Many students have chosen ODLS to catch up on their high school careers, but have also had the chance to look to the future with College Credit Plus, a program that allows students to earn college credits while are in high school. For 2022, at least 2 students have taken advantage of this program and are graduating from high school this week on track for a college degree.
The class reports that she has been accepted to colleges and universities in Ohio and beyond, including Youngstown State University, University of Toledo, Columbus College of Art & Design, Wright State and Marshall University.
Before the pandemic, students enrolled in virtual school for a number of reasons: some were looking to escape bullying, some may have lost their way academically, and others were looking for an alternative to the traditional classroom.
The details of the graduation ceremonies are as follows:
