A+Campus to distribute supplies next week

Students enrolled in virtual classes must report to home school

With the Sept. 8 target date for the opening of public schools in Acadia Parish, Superintendent Scott Richard has released details on the A+Campus virtual program being offered here.
The Acadia Parish School System has sent out a memo in reference to the recently developed A+Campus, a totally virtual program created in response to the world-wide COVID-19 pandemic.
Students who have enrolled in Acadia Parish’s virtual program must visit their home school — the original APSS school they would attend in person — in order to complete an enrollment packet and pick up electronic devices provided by the school district.
During the week of Aug. 31 - Sept. 4, the school that a student would normally attend in-person will be distributing Chromebooks to all those enrolled in A+Campus. Home schools will communicate specific pickup dates and times in the coming days.
The district anticipates providing the following:
• Chromebook or Chrome Tablet (depending on grade level)
• Login credentials for Edgenuity Platform
• Workbooks and/or course guided notes are being printed and will likely be available during this timeframe
• A+Campus contract
• Chromebook contract
• A+Campus Flyer with information about the Virtual School Lab (tutoring/assistance)
Any parent with a student already enrolled in the virtual program is advised to check email account provided to the district.
An initial A+Campus Preview narrated slide show will be emailed to provide an overview of the program. A second, more comprehensive orientation video will be sent the week of Aug. 31 – Sept. 4.
In addition, in an effort to keep everyone informed, the APSS has created an A+Campus Remind that will send text messages directly to cell phones and/or email addresses. Sign up by texting @4gae6e to 81010.
Parents can visit the A+Campus website for the most up to date information or reach out to with any questions or concerns.
Anyone wishing to opt out of the A+Campus, is urged to notifying APSS at 337-783-5817 or email them at as soon as possible.
If an individual is unable to pick up an Acadia Parish School Board device at the designated home school on the assigned day, parents/guardians may contact the school to make arrangements to pick up the device. However, a school board-issued device is not necessary for a student to begin participating in the A+Campus.
Students may access the Edgenuity Platform from any device currently in a household once credentials are provided.
Parents of students that were not enrolled in an Acadia Parish school last year but are interested in participating in the A+Campus, should call the school for which they are zoned to register. Once the child has been enrolled into an Acadia Parish school, he/she will be eligible to receive a device for A+Campus.
Any parent with questions or concerns is urged to contact the A+Campus staff.
In regards to meals, A+Campus students will be offered breakfast and lunch through a weekly Grab and Go process. More information about meals and pickup schedules will be provided in the coming days.
