SYLVANIA, Ohio — The Sylvania Alternative Learn Academy (SALA) will serve as an option for students who choose 100% remote learning for the 2020-2021 school year. 

SALA curriculum will be provided through Edgenuity for students K-12 in Sylvania Schools . 

Students in elementary and junior high will be limited to basic core academic areas. An elective is offered as necessary to ensure each student has a minimum of five courses. 

High school students will be scheduled in a minimum of five semester-long courses in order to be on track for graduation with minimum requirements.

SALA does not meet NCAA eligibility requirements for high school students.

Registration for SALA will last from July 7 until July 20. Application forms can be found here.

The enrollment commitment is for the entire school year. Short-term absences from school due to COVID-19 or other issues will be handled through the traditional process rather than through SALA enrollment.  

The Sylvania Board of Education says SALA creates a safe, respectful environment that integrates technology, personalized instruction and supportive relationships.
