Spokane Virtual Academy (SVA)

  • Is your student interested in attending school virtually for the 2021-22 school 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.

    • SVA K-8 will offer synchronous instructional blocks from 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., with a lunch break from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Please see additional information below about SVA K-8.

         ⇒ What does synchronous mean? Students will be logged in with their SVA teacher and classmates during the instructional blocks.

    • K-12 asynchronous virtual instruction will be served by Spokane Virtual Learning (SVL) for the 2021-22 school year.

         ⇒ What does asynchronous mean? Parents and guardians will be responsible to ensure students are completing assignments. 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 with their parents.

    At this time, SVA is limited to Spokane Public Schools students. SVL offers district partnerships to support non-SPS students. The deadline for registration has passed. More information will be posted if we are able to open up registrations for SVA.

  • Spokane Virtual Academy is now a Spokane Public Schools option school that provides students in kindergarten through 8th grade with a personalized, online educational experience through a blended learning (synchronous) experience (students online with their teacher and classmates). This model 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 (with SVA’s synchronous experience, students will have daily contact with their 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). Learning will focus on core content delivered in live, instructional learning blocks using Microsoft Teams. Students enrolled in the blended learning model will need to be available to participate in a traditional school day (8:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.) 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
    • Independent/small group work
    • Electives (7th and 8th graders)

    Independent (Asynchronous)

    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.
