Overview of the Program
The Plum Digital Learning Academy (PDLA) is an innovative opportunity for our students to engage in an online learning environment while remaining connected to the Plum Borough School District. These online classes provide flexible scheduling options to meet the needs of our students and families. The program is open to ALL PBSD families and is available for students in grades K-12.
About the Program
Plum Digital Learning Academy utilizes Accelerate Education and Imagine Edgenuity Courseware to provide online course options for students in grades K-12. PDLA is presented as an asynchronous learning environment that allows students to work at their own pace and on their own schedule. All of the PDLA courses are monitored by Plum Borough School District teachers who can provide assistance and support as needed.
The PDLA course offerings are consistent with the traditional course offerings at our elementary, middle, and senior high schools. These courses are presented through Accelerate Education and Imagine Edgenuity Courseware online learning platforms. Each course is designed to reflect the pacing and curriculum of our in-person courses and is aligned with the Pennsylvania State Board of Education Standards.
The Accelerate Education program is designed for our students in grades K-6. We offer four core classes (English, Math, Science, and Social Studies) as well as two extracurricular or “specials”. Students in grades 7-12 will access their courses via the Imagine Edgenuity learning management system. Here, students can create a full-time or “blended” schedule of both virtual and in-person courses. Both programs offer students the flexibility to work at their own pace and create their own schedules while moving towards mastery of each concept, skill, and standard.
