The program was piloted at Pioneer High School in 2009.

It has become a very successful online credit option for students in CCSD that has helped change culture, provide technological support and has helped raise the graduation rate in the district, said Jason Zona, principal of Pioneer High School.

Carson Online has grown each year and now serves all the secondary schools in CCSD at (Pioneer High School, Carson High School, Eagle Valley Middle School and Carson Middle School) in grades 6-12, Zona continued. CCSD is adding elementary options this year. In the previous 2016-2017 school year, high school students in the full-time online program had a passing rate of 92 percent.

“This highly successful online program helped more students graduate despite several barriers such as credit deficiency, transiency, a high free and reduced lunch ratio, moving between schools in high school, work schedules, and/or medical conditions preventing students from attending traditional high schools,” Zona said. “Advanced and Honors diplomas were also available through these options at the high school level.”
