Do I need to own a computer to attend?
Students are provided a dedicated workstation in the SF Flex school site that includes a computer and everything required to facilitate the online component of the program. Although not required, it is recommended that students either own or have regular access to a computer outside of the SF Flex school site to complete homework assignments. SF Flex will make arrangements for families to have access to computers for homework after school if families do not have regular access to computers outside of school.
What computer skills are required?
Students need to have at least some basic computer skills in order to be successful in the program. SF Flex will have training sessions for students that need additional support in this area.
