DOES LCA OFFER AN EXTENDED CARE PROGRAM?
LCA is happy to provide our Extended Care Program as a benefit to parents who work and are unable to drop off or pick up their child during normal school arrival and dismissal times. Our qualified staff will provide a structured and quiet time for your student to complete any homework and then transition the students into time filled with socializing with one another by enjoying the playground, creating a craft, or playing a board game. Our hope is to provide security and peace of mind that your child is well-cared for while you work.

WHAT IS THE POLICY FOR THE 1:1 DEVICE IN UPPER SCHOOL?
Over the past few years, LCA has led the way in leveraging technology for increased learning in Walton County. We were the first school in the county to introduce the iLearn initiative, including a 1:1 learning platform, requiring every 6th–12th grade student to have a device.
Understanding that technology changes at a rapid pace and that the educational needs of our students vary based on grade level and classroom, student devices are owned and managed by the LCA IT Department. As part of each student's technology fee, devices are issued to students. This strategy provides the flexibility to introduce the right technology for each grade based on the needs of the curriculum, allowing students to gain exposure to multiple technical platforms in a safe and intentionally-administered environment.
To ensure accountability and oversight, LCA will continue to monitor student activity on all devices 24/7 with the ability to provide additional firewalls and content filters, the ability to dismantle access to the Internet during online assessments, and full tech support provided by LCA’s IT department as well as support from the manufacturer of the device.
