Virtual Learning Academy of St. Clair County


COVID-19 Extended Learning Plan

This plan does not replace the District's COVID-19 Preparedness & Response Plan. It is an additional plan that includes new assurances and sections on educational goals, instructional delivery, grading, and equitable access. Here is the link to VLA's Extended Learning Plan that was approved by our authorizing body, St. Clair County RESA, on September 28, 2020. Please see the links below for our educational goals progress updates.
Goal Reporting - February 1, 2021
- Goal Reporting - June 30, 2021 (coming at the end of the school year)

VLA has held 3 professional development days (6 hours in duration each) for staff since the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. Topics have included Google Classroom, Cleaning Protocols, a book study on the Pandemic Population, School Improvement, and Tech Tools. Our PD scheduled in February will cover topics including Xello Career Exploration, Legal Updates, and Building Student Relationships.
 
Use of Google Classroom and the staff created Supplemental Instruction YouTube Videos has been discussed with students and parents using social media, mailed home newsletters, and our school App. Given that VLA is an online program, further instructions to access and use virtual content was not necessary as this instruction is provided for all students when they enroll during their information meetings and orientation.

Weekly Two-Way Interaction Percentages

VLA is reporting two (qty. 2) two-way interactions percentages every week. These will be posted after each monthly board meeting.

Two-way interaction defined: An interaction between student and teacher of district employee that is relevant to the course content or progress in the course. The interaction is prompted/initiated by one party and responded by the other. (A mass email by itself will not suffice). These interactions may occur through but not limited to: email (again, there has to be some sort of back and forth communication), telephone, text messaging, face-to-face conversations, a completed homework assignment. **Attendance in a face-to-face or synchronous learning environment fulfills the to-way interaction requirement.
