Pacific Crest Online Academy provides special education services, in collaboration with the special education team in Richland School District.
PCOA utilizes the Canvas learning management platform which was built using the most modern HTML and CSS technologies, and is committed to W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative and Section 508 guidelines. Using Canvas allows for teachers to build in modifications for all students.
Each student will continue to be supported through the team process that is currently in place for students who are in traditional school or HomeLink. The team will ultimately decide the services needed to support a student and if placement at Pacific Crest Online Academy is appropriate.
In providing the least restrictive environment (LRE) for students, PCOA may be an option in conjunction with in person services at a traditional school site. This would ensure that the student would receive the necessary and appropriate services while still having access to GenEd and a platform and space to communicate with their peers.
