Spokane Virtual Academy
Is your K-12th grader interested in attending school virtually next year?
Spokane Virtual Academy will offer many learning pathways -- including live and independent learning options -- built to support a variety of student and family needs.
All students, from either in or outside SPS attendance boundaries, are welcome.
Interested in this option for the 2021-22 school year?
Spokane Virtual Academy provides students in kindergarten through 12th grade with a personalized online educational experience through a blended learning model (synchronous), or a fully independent (asynchronous) model. Both models will follow the Washington State Alternative Learning Experience requirements. These requirements include:
- All students having a Written Student Learning Plan (WSLP)
- Weekly contact between the student and teacher
- Monthly progress reviews to determine if your student is making satisfactory progress
Blended Learning (Synchronous)
Students will engage in grade level content and learning standards through a combination of live virtual classroom time with their teachers and independent work time using online learning platforms (Dreambox, Lexia) and traditional materials (Bridges, Journeys). The morning (8:30-11:50am) will be focused on core content delivered in live instructional learning blocks using Microsoft Teams. The afternoon will be set aside for personalized electives, independent work, and additional live small group time with teachers. Students enrolled in the blended learning model will need to be available to participate in a traditional school day (8:30am-3:00pm) in an online environment.
Student Daily Activities:
- Whole group morning meeting/social emotional lessons
- Core academic block (ELA, Math, Social Studies, Science)
- Fitness and Health
- Break for lunch
- Independent/small group work
- Exploratory Electives
The independent option is designed for families who would like a more flexible learning option for their child. Teachers create lessons, assess student work, and communicate with families and students through office hours and individual appointments. Content is provided through online learning experiences with students managing their own learning. Parents and guardians will be responsible to ensure students are completing assignments following the student’s WSLP. Students must be available to meet weekly with a teacher to discuss assignments and review progress.
