Dave and Susan Dudas, co-founders of the Edge Academy, established Akros Middle School for parents that demand a choice for their child's education.  

Hello wonderful parents and guardians,

At this point in the year we are trying to move forward with a set plan for the upcoming school year. We want to maintain our student’s health and wellbeing over all other things. We are and hope you are willing to be flexible with what that will look like. We are hoping to have all K-5 (Edge) students in our building every day and 6-8 (Akros) at least 2 days per week. We are working with Petermann on busing but most likely masks will be required on the school buses.

Here are some things we have put into place for the 2021 school year:

  • We have also installed UVC lights on all of our HVAC units which purifies the air and kills coronaviruses and bacteria.
  • Every student grouping will stay in their classroom all day.
  • Lunch will be served in the classroom and specials classes will take place in the classroom as well.
  • All of our desks will be six feet apart and students and staff will be encouraged to maintain proper social distancing procedures thought out the day.
  • We will sanitize high touch services often throughout the day.

With all of this in mind I know that some of you still will not feel comfortable sending your child(ren) to school so, our school will also be offering the option for you to join our new remote learning school option. Your students proceed 100% online this year. We will provide technology and training to maintain this type of online learning. We will have staff dedicated to the production and operation of the online programs to support you and your student if this is an option that interests you.

To be a successful online student you will need to have consistent access to the following:

  • Internet access
  • Dedicated learning space
  • Maintaining a rigorous consistent learning schedule
  • Complete all assignments by given due date

If you decide to proceed with online learning for the 2020-2021 school year we ask that you call our office at The Edge Academy, 330-535-4581 or Akros Middle School 330-374-6704. If you decide to go with this option your student will be online for the entire school year. We are asking for your answer by July 24th, 2020 so we can proceed with planning out the rest of the school year. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call the school and reach out to a member of the administrative team.
