Mission“Our mission is to provide personalized, evidence-based educational services for non-traditional learners in collaboration with families and public school districts.”
On-site Computer-based Learning
This is the only contracted computer-based program. Students use the A+ Online system to earn credits. Teachers are always on site and always available to help. 25%-30% of instruction happens in small groups with a teacher. The A+ Online program also provides differentiated supports to assist students at any level, including those with lower reading levels.
Ombudsman Northwest Accelerated is a half-day program with morning and afternoon sessions. Students choose the session at their interview and open seats depend on availability.
Ombudsman Northwest Accelerated has strong partnerships with a number of local community organizations and church and offers various opportunities for students to participate in community service opportunities including food and clothes drives, holiday donations, and public service opportunities.
Parents and guardians are an important part of the Ombudsman Northwest Accelerated program. In addition to multiple parent engagement events and activities throughout the year, Ombudsman also hosts a Parent Advisory Board that meets regularly to support the program and provide feedback and ideas for the best ways to support students.
Extra Curricular Activities
Ombudsman Northwest Accelerated offers a number of community service and civic engagement opportunities for students to participate in, as well as a newly formed Scrabble Team.
