More About This Program
The Frameworks Biblical Worldview Initiative is an extension of Northwest Christian School Online and represents expanded opportunities for high school students to dig deeper and explore further their growing understanding of the truths of God’s word, their meaning within worldview formation, and their relevance in every area of life.
Frameworks courses are developed in proud partnership with:
In certain instances, yes. But, each Frameworks course is designed so that a student would proceed through the 18-week class as part of a cohort of high school students from around the country. During the 2021/2022 school year, if a student needs to alter the schedule for their learning, this will be handled by the Frameworks Facilitator.
Yes, but it will depend upon the nature of the IEP. In certain circumstances, the online format of the course and the supplemental tools that are available online may actually improve learning outcomes for such a student. In other cases, the student’s experience may be diminished. If the student has an IEP, please reach out to the school to better understand which of these two situations best describes the student’s situation.
Based on the type of Frameworks course, this answer will vary. In some courses, there are online quizzes. In other courses, higher order thinking assignments, writing prompts, and similar strategies are employed.
Each Frameworks course has both a Subject Matter Expert and a Frameworks Facilitator. The Subject Matter Expert is the individual that worked with a team of curriculum designers to write the class and develop its content. The Frameworks Facilitator is the individual who virtually partners with participating students, answers questions, grades work, and gauges student progress. In certain circumstances, the Subject Matter Expert is also the Frameworks Facilitator. In other cases, the two roles are separate.
Frameworks courses are facilitated using two different Learning Management Systems (LMS). The primary Frameworks LMS is LoudCloud, a system developed by Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona. The secondary LMS is Canvas, developed by Instructure. Courses within LoudCloud have a hard start date and a hard finish date. During the 2021/2022 school year, all Frameworks courses will be uniquely facilitated by LoudCloud. The Canvas LMS will eventually allow for on-demand start dates.
If a student is a full-time on-the-ground or full-time online student of Northwest Christian School, yes, a family is able to work through a recognized and approved School Tuition Organization towards securing a state tuition tax credit scholarship. However, state tuition tax credit scholarships are only available to NCS full-time students.
