THE BASICS:

How does Flex Academies ONE work?


Imagine someone who teaches music lessons, hip hop dancing, soccer or coding coming into your home every weekday to work with your child. While it is not possible right now, Flex Academies ONE offers the next best thing: Scheduled, online learning experiences from certified instructors in different areas of interest.




Who is teaching the online classes and what are the ages allowed?


All online classes will be taught by Flex Academies certified instructors who have been background checked and are experienced teachers in their fields. Many of them have been part of the Flex Academies family for years. The typical class will be for Kindergarten through 6th graders. We do of course ask parents to place their children in the correct age group when you register them.




Why are you calling this “social” learning?


It’s social because your child will be able to see other children online learning and having fun at the same time. In fact, some of your child’s friends are likely to be in the same classes, laughing, dancing, and moving all together.




What if my family, and specifically my child, are new to online enrichment?


Not a problem, our team is here to help and we have an Online Coordinator present at every session. And, to be honest, most of us are new to online enrichment. The concept for Flex Academies ONE was built out of necessity to help parents educate their kids during COVID-19 with schools closed - and - generate income for our trusted providers, who are primarily small businesses. We will all learn together as we experience this pandemic together.




What do I need to do on the technology side before the class so that my child is prepared?


Make sure you have reviewed our handy best practices for parents. And, hopefully you can find a quiet space or corner for your child so they can focus on the activity for the full hour.




Is this just for students of Rye City School District?


Yes! Your PTO’s partnered with Flex Academies to create an online enrichment program after school just for your families.





CLASSES AND REGISTRATION:

What is the role of the Online Coordinator?


Each class will have an Online Learning Coordinator, who is there to welcome students, answer any questions, and make sure that everything runs smoothly. Our Online Coordinator will ensure the safety of each child entering the “virtual room” through two authentication codes.




Are all of your providers background checked?


Yes, With Flex Academies ONE, you know that the instructors who are interacting with your kids have been thoroughly screened and background-checked by Flex Academies. That’s a promise that you don’t get with most free, online classes. In fact, each and every provider and their instructors are held to the specific Flex Academies standards regarding background checks and insurance, including presenting proof of a clear background check and clearance in the National Sex Offender Registry.




Do I need a passcode to get into the online enrichment classes?


Absolutely you do. This is one of the many steps we take to ensure that the families and children that sign up for our class are the ONLY people who join our classes.




Why do you ask all the children in the class to appear on camera?


Again, it is about safety for Flex Academies ONE. By seeing the excited and engaged faces of the children, we are 100 percent certain that the students attending our class are the right people to be in the class. Safety is the top priority.
