 Online Learning
 
Birdville Online Learning offers several programs for students interested in registering for an online class. If you are interested in accelerating credit, recovering lost credit, dual credit or summer school, please review the information within this website to see if online learning is for you!
 
We offer a Credit Recovery program which targets failing students and students who are behind in earning graduation credits in grades 9-12 and, who may be seeking an alternative instructional setting to gain lost credits. The credit recovery program focuses on the core courses of Math, Social Studies, Science and English as well as, Health, Speech and Physical Education. Compass Learning is the online instructional program that will be monitored by a content specific online instructor, coupled with personal assistance from a certified teacher in one of the Personalized Academic Learning Labs (PAL) located at each high school campus. Students work independently at their own pace while the PAL instructor facilitates instruction, provide student support as needed and monitor progress. The PAL instructor will maintain communication with each parent as to the progress of their child. Please see the Planning Guide for detailed information.
 
We also offer students an option to gain credits in our Birdville Virtual School for Accelerated Credit.  The Accelerated credit program focuses on the core courses of Math, Social Studies, Science and English as well as, Health, Speech and Physical Education. Birdville Virtual School for Accelerated Credit are courses offered outside of the student’s traditional school day. Registering for an accelerated course provides students the opportunity to complete a course at their own pace within a defined time period to earn course credit toward graduation. Courses are aligned with the Birdville ISD curriculum to include the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and consists of a web-based program used to deliver curriculum in a virtual learning environment utilizing our online learning platform and individualized instruction as needed. Please see the Planning Guide for detailed information.
 
Students who are academically talented, highly motivated and who thrive in an environment where they are regularly challenged to realize their full potential should consider registering for a course in the Birdville Online Learning for Accelerated Credit. Our accelerated course’s and curriculum are designed to challenge students to discover, explore, and grow. Because our courses are competency based, students are able to work ahead or take additional time on a lesson if needed. This sense of ownership over their own education helps accelerated learners gain valuable experience in taking responsibility and create their own goals. Students who are already independent learners thrive with the opportunity to move at their own pace.
