Red Comet offers a complete self-paced online high school program that is both rigorous and engaging. Red Comet, which was approved as a Multi-district Online School Program Provider by the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) has teamed with Toppenish School District in Washington State to create its first online program in conjunction with a school district. Red Comet’s online program excels not only in the breadth of its offering but also has received the best ratings for student satisfaction in Washington State. Red Comet’s online learning is engaging and presents even the most challenging topics in a way that students can understand. Students taking our online high schoolclasses are challenged using a variety of learning techniques which makes learning interesting while keeping them motivated to complete their courses within the allotted schedule.
Red Comet’s Reporting and Tracking feature provides a clear outlay of student course progress. Several indicators within this feature will let the student, parent and school administrators track what portions of the course still need to be completed. Parents and teachers / school staff can monitor student progress by logging into the system. In case they have questions on the reports, the parents and teachers / school staff of the students’ school can always contact Red Comet staff for further clarifications.
A wide variety of report generation facilities have been implemented to help Red Comet staff and the students’ school administration keep close tabs on all day-to-day activities of the student. We can track when the students logged in and for how long. Every day, our student support staff monitors progress for all students who are enrolled in our courses. If students have not logged in for a while, Red Comet administration will send out nudge emails to the student reminding them of their course responsibilities. Progress reports are emailed to school authorities as soon as a student completes a section in a course.
“Reporting of student achievement serves numerous purposes for various audiences. Students, parents, counselors, other schools, school districts, and even state agencies are potential audiences. Online schools can use student achievement information at a number of levels, including individual, course, grade or school. Good reporting practice takes into account the school community’s expectations and system requirements, particularly the need for information about metrics that will enable parents to know and understand their children’s progress,” said Dr. Jay Srinivasan, Managing Director of Red Comet.
“Students, parents and school staff all need their own log in identity and password to enter the Red Comet system. Each entity will have access to only the data that pertains to them. For instance, parents and school staff can view student progress reports just for their students. Also, parents and teachers can view the students’ progress reports while only the student will have access to all the course material, assignments and tests,” said Ms. Sapna Ganeshan, President of Red Comet.
Students throughout the country use Red Comet’s high school classes that include all core subjects – Language Arts, Science, Mathematics and Social Studies, as well as numerous high school electives. A variety of students use Red Comet’s online learning program – students in need of credit recovery, students attending public high schools who cannot attend all of their high school classes, students attending private schools who are looking for electives or Advanced Placement classes, home school high school students who need help in specific subject areas, athletes, students with part-time jobs etc.
