More Than a Curriculum. A Partnership.
The launch of a Star Academy is only the beginning. NOLA Education’s Star support staff remain dedicated partners throughout the year, standing by to help or answer any questions that might arise.
Support begins with comprehensive training and professional development.
It continues with on-site assistance, technical support and phone or email support, year-round.
A dedicated Education Support Specialist is also assigned to each Academy to act as the main point of contact.
Valuable Ongoing Professional Development
The program includes comprehensive on-site professional development to help educators optimally implement the new teaching style. As they absorb the Star Academy methodology, educators are also gaining valuable career knowledge that makes them more effective in their jobs – particularly when working with at-risk students.
NOLA Education’s team of support personnel is always standing by. They include Educational Support Specialists, Curricula Coaches, IT Technicians, and Program Liaisons. Experts customize the curriculum to meet each district’s unique needs and standards, prepare educators for the program rollout, then provide monthly on-site support for school staff.
Learning and Content Management
As educators, the creators of Star Academy were fully aware that learning and content management can make or break a classroom.
A fully-integrated, cloud-based content and learning management system is included in the program, enabling course scheduling, assessments, content delivery, and progress tracking – so teachers are freed to focus on students.
The learning and content management systems is fully supported by the NOLA Education IT team year-round.
