ALSDE What Is ACCESS Video Transcript
What is ACCESS?
ACCESS stands for Alabama Connecting Classrooms, Educators and Students Statewide.
But what does that mean?
ACCESS is Alabama’s free public virtual learning program.
We provide free online and videoconferencing courses to students at public middle schools and high schools.
Students throughout the state of Alabama take ACCESS courses.
Our online classes can be taken any time, any place and at any pace.
Your child’s classes are taught by certified teachers, who guide your child through the course, answer questions, email your child and provide feedback on your child’s work.
ACCESS teachers will help your child succeed. Don’t be afraid to contact your child’s teacher with any questions or concerns.
Your child’s school should assign an on-site facilitator to support your child.
The facilitator is a school employee who will assist with technical problems, watch over your child during tests and help them stay on task.
If you don’t know your child’s facilitator, ask the school guidance counselor.
In addition to following the teacher’s rules and policies, make sure your child follows the facilitator’s rules and policies.
If your child works hard in the class and communicates regularly with the teacher for feedback, advice and help, your child can succeed in the ACCESS course.
Now that you know what ACCESS is, feel free to contact your support center with any questions at 334-242-9594.
