Jeremy Voytko is the new principal of 27J Schools' new Online Academy. A press statement said Voytko will begin serving in his role immediately to prepare for the upcoming school year. As of late last week, close to 300 students enrolled in the academy for the 2021-2022 school year.
“Jeremy's commitment to creating an inclusive online community through collaboration and culture building is exactly what we had in mind when creating this new program,” said Director of Student Achievement Brett Minne in the statement. “We are excited to welcome him to the team and are confident the 27J Online Academy will provide an additional learning option to best meet the academic needs of our students.”
Voytko grew up in Colorado and earned a bachelor of science in biology and anthropology. Soon after graduating college, he moved to Sweden and earned a master's in science education from Stockholm University. Voytko received a Master's in educational leadership from Western Colorado University in Gunnison. He most recently served as a science teacher and academic coach at the STEM School Highlands Ranch. “I am so excited to join the 27J team in the role of principal
of 27J Online Academy,” said Voytko in the statement. “I look forward to working with the talented team of educators and professionals in the district to establish this new school. I know working together with students, staff, and families will create an engaging and vibrant learning community that strives to meet the needs of every child.”
Education has changed dramatically over the last few years. The district's statement said advances in technology allow students to study entirely online while still socializing with classmates, watching lectures and participating in subject-specific discussions.
"27J Schools understands that some of our students prefer online learning over in-person learning and would like to pursue this educational pathway," the statement said. "In order to meet the needs of every student, 27J Schools has created an online learning academy to best serve the learning needs of students who prefer this mode of education."
