Clarenceville Virtual Academy (CVA) Information
Realizing that some parents may not want to have their child return to school this year because of the risks posed by the COVID-19 virus, our reopening plan includes an option for a full-time, at-home Virtual Academy to meet students' needs. The Clarenceville Virtual Academy (CVA) will allow students to continue their education at home using a curriculum that can be accessed fully online. Students will be provided a school district-owned Chromebook to access classes. Internet access at home is required. Enrolling in CVA is a semester long commitment. Once enrolled, students will not have the option to switch to the "Phase Schedule" that includes fully remote, hybrid, and 5 days per week schedules depending on the phase in our region or school board decision. Those who sign-up for Clarenceville Virtual Academy remain Clarenceville School District students with the same access to services and activities as traditionally enrolled CSD students.
CVA in Grades JK-5
The JK-5 Clarenceville Virtual Academy option is available by request for any family that is more comfortable having their child learn all online with a more flexible schedule. Elementary students will be assigned a Clarenceville Teacher who will teach the lessons both synchronously and asynchronously. Students will have the option to attend lessons live or watch them at a more convenient time. The content in the virtual academy is the same as the traditional content.
CVA in Grades 6-12
The 6-12 Clarenceville Virtual Academy Option is a self-paced, flexible learning opportunity for our students. This is a self-guided platform and courses will be monitored by Clarenceville School District (CSD) teachers to assure progress and completion. Attendance, student engagement with their prescribed curriculum, and academic progress will be assessed, and students will receive letter grades and earn credit. Those who sign-up for Clarenceville Virtual Academy remain Clarenceville School District students with the same access to services and activities as traditionally enrolled CSD students.
The curriculum in the Virtual Academy is provided by our district partner, Edmentum. The content is fully aligned to the Michigan Merit Curriculum and students will receive credit for course work as they would in person. In addition to the access to prescribed curriculum, which can be accessed anytime, students and parents will receive support from Clarenceville Schools Highly Qualified Teachers. Each CSD student will be assigned a CSD teacher as a mentor and monitor of their work. If a student is in need of support on this learning path, a Clarenceville teacher in that content area will be assigned to support them. CSD teachers provide both scheduled and unscheduled interaction with each student for the purpose of guiding, evaluating, and providing assistance throughout the term. Students are not locked into a weekly or daily time-bound structure, other than the Office Hours / Targeted Intervention available each day. All CVA students will have access to activities planned at their home building and high school students will maintain their assigned counselor. We want to build and maintain connections between the CVA students and the district.
