How does online school in Virginia work?
Day-to-day learning in a K12-powered Virginia public school differs by grade level, but generally includes:
Live online classes with teachers and students
Support from the student's Learning Coach, a parent or other responsible adult, who plays an active role especially in the early grades and ensures the student is on track with assignments and coursework, records daily attendance, and communicates with teachers
Social opportunities that bring students together
Online lessons are mastery based and include hands-on learning opportunities away from the computer.
As a student advances, they begin to monitor their own learning schedule. The curriculum includes online and various levels of hands-on learning depending on the grade level and course.
As independent learners, high school students communicate with teachers and begin focusing on postsecondary goals with support from counselors. The online curriculum includes various levels of core courses and a broad selection of electives.
