The Anderson School District Two Virtual Learning Academy is a fully online public school option for students in Kindergarten -12th Grade. Students enrolled in the virtual/online program will receive instruction remotely from a certified Anderson School District Two teacher(s), though some courses may be offered at the secondary level through SC Virtual School or Edgenuity. Curriculum and resources will be aligned to the state standards and Anderson School District Two’s scope and sequence of curriculum. Students will turn in assignments daily and the teacher(s) will provide feedback to students. Within a scheduled day, instruction may be delivered live or learning may be delivered through recorded lessons with independent work to support instruction. Anderson School District Two grading guidelines will be followed. Attendance will be taken daily to fulfill local and state requirements. Students who participate in virtual school will be required to participate in state testing should testing be required by the state. Students in the Virtual Academy will have a full day of learning just as in face-to-face school. Please see the example schedules below.
Important Considerations When Making Decisions for Participation in the Virtual Learning Academy:
Students in kindergarten through fifth grade will need an adult at home to provide support with learning while completing assignments and ensuring that work is completed.
Students must have access to reliable internet in the home that can support online instruction.
Students will be required to follow the prescribed schedule developed for his/her class.
Students will be required to participate in live sessions (synchronous learning approach) at designated times throughout the day.
If students do not participate in live sessions or complete assignments, they will be marked absent for the day/class.
Students may use Edgenuity or iReady curriculums under the guidance of an Anderson School District Two teacher.
Students that choose to participate in the Virtual Learning Academy will only be allowed to enroll in face to face school at the end of each 9 weeks and if class size allows for additional students.
