The Virtual Learning Center is an 100% online learning program led by highly-qualified West Valley certificated teachers. Utilizing curriculum from K-12 Stride, VLC staff develop learning plans for each student, evaluate student work, track progress on a variety of measures and help students find success in the program. Just like a traditional school setting, there is no cost for the family. In addition, the district provides all curriculum, materials and technology for VLC students.
What is Virtual Kindergarten?
Virtual kindergarten is an opportunity for families to be highly involved with their student's schooling by assisting with the teaching of lessons as well as lesson completion. Teachers and parents maintain high levels of communication and work as a team in the education of students. In addition to their online lessons, students can expect to meet daily for a virtual meeting with their classmates and teacher. During these meetings students participate in calendar activities, games, announcements, character education and social emotional lessons. Other than the daily morning meeting, families have a great deal of flexibility in creating their daily and weekly schedules. As a way to build in social opportunities, students have the opportunity to participate in weekly Learning In Person Days and monthly field trips.
