Virtual Learning Academy Information

Virtual Learning Academy

How do I enroll my children?

Students who are utilizing the Virtual Learning Module remain a student at Fairfield Union, therefore, the only action that parents need to complete is the Virtual Learning Academy Application below.  (Please do not attempt to enroll on the Jefferson County VLA site.)  
 
For those with multiple children, please complete the application for each child in your household separately.  Once you have completed the VLA application, you will be contacted by Fairfield Union to discuss your child's VLA schedule.
 
 
Parents are also required to complete the OneView forms.
 
THE DEADLINE TO ENROLL IN THE VLA OPTION IS AUGUST 10 
 

Parent/Student Online Option Expectations

In order to effectively manage the delivery of VLA, parents and students must understand the following:

  • VLA, or another online curriculum, cannot fully replicate the learning experience found with in-person teaching.
  • Parents and the students accept additional responsibility in an online (at-home) learning environment.
  • The District expects parents choosing this option for their child to commit to at least a quarter - (nine weeks).  Students should not be switching back-and-forth between online learning and in-person attendance frequently.  This provides for consistency for our teachers and students.
  • Teachers may not be available to assist students as frequently as the online student or their parents may desire.  Teachers will be instructing and supervising students in-person within our school buildings.  Teachers may not be available to assist students outside of their contractual work hours.
  • Parents and students should expect up to five (5) days before VLA lessons are available.  Once a choice is made to access learning through the VLA platform there are set-up procedures that need to take place prior to lessons being available.
  • Students must comply with assignment due dates.
  • Students must sign-in electronically to the online learning platform each day Fairfield Union Schools are scheduled to be in session to be counted as in attendance.
  • Lessons/assignments may be different for online VLA students than those assigned or provided to students attending in-person instruction; however, the lesson/assignment will address the same concepts and standards of instruction.
