OKCPS has announced it will offer online education at a new school, the Oklahoma City Lockdown School, on Monday.
The school, which will be run by Lockdown Education, a nonprofit that offers online education, will open in September 2019.
The school will offer students in grades 6 through 12 and offer online courses in lockdown and security.
The online program will also offer in-person instruction in lock down and security and is expected to provide students with additional learning in the areas of cyber security and criminal justice.
The program is expected, in addition to the school’s existing online classes, to include on-site seminars and other educational activities.
“Lockdown Education is proud to be one of the first schools in the nation to offer online learning to lock down students in Oklahoma, which is the second state to do so after Oklahoma City,” Lockdown CEO Brian Hagerty said in a press release.
“It will be an exciting time for Lockdown students as they will be able to learn in person, get the hands-on training they need, and participate in an interactive learning environment.”
In addition to offering the school online courses, Lockdown will also host seminars and a special event on October 10, 2019, for students interested in securing their property and using it as a place to work, study, play and socialize.
