How it Works
In partnership with ResponsiveEd®, TXVA uses online curriculum and tools provided by K¹². Learning can happen at home, on the road, or wherever an Internet connection can be found. While attendance, teacher interaction, and daily lessons are conducted online, our lessons use physical materials and offline tools as well.
Texas-Certified Teachers, Superior Teaching Tools
At Texas Virtual Academy, all students interact with one or more state-certified teachers and communicate regularly with their teachers through e-mail, telephone, and online meetings. Each TXVA family receives boxes of materials, including a wide array of textbooks, CDs, videos, and other hands-on tools and resources. These materials complement the interactive online elements of our program, ensuring that students receive instruction using the best method for each subject matter.
Extensive School Support System
TXVA also provides an extensive support system to both parents and students. Working closely with the teacher, the parent (or other responsible adult) serves as a "Learning Coach" to the child, helping to facilitate his or her progress and working to modify the pace and schedule as needed. In addition, monthly networking opportunities are provided through various events and outings, enabling the entire school community to keep in close contact.
Individualized Learning, Public School Accountability
In addition to providing individualized learning, as an online public school, TXVA provides the structure, administrative support, oversight, accountability, and state testing required of all public schools.
