VSP Open House Presentation 2022-2023

For the 2022-2023 school year, all students in the MCPS Virtual School Program will take all classes through Virtual Virginia. Students can log into Virtual Virginia using the link above.

I have a question about...

Class Times or Schedule

Viewing Schedules

To see your Virtual Virginia (VVA) schedule, please log into your VVA account. If you do not know your login information, contact Katie Larimer (klarimer@mcps.org). While you can see student schedules when you log into PowerSchool Parent or Student Portal, this schedule does not accurately reflect the time of VVA synchronous sessions.

Synchronous Classes

Most VVA classes are synchronous this year, meaning that students are expected to attend live class sessions through Zoom at a regular time each day. Attendance for synchronous classes is based on attendance during live sessions. For more detailed information about the structure of VVA classes, see the VVA website:

Classes are labeled as synchronous or asynchronous when you look at the schedule in VVA. See this document for a more complete explanation.

School Calendars

Virtual Virginia (VVA) and Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) do not follow the same calendar. Students in VVA classes will follow the VVA calendar for those classes.

Who to Contact

Depending on your question or concern, you will have a different point of contact.

  • If you are having trouble logging into your Virtual Virginia (VVA) account or any of your classes, contact Katie Larimer (klarimer@mcps.org).

  • If you have technical problems with your MCPS Chromebook or online resource, contact the MCPS Technology Help Desk at 540-381-6165.

  • If you have technical problems with Virtual Virginia resources, contact the VVA Technology Help Desk.

  • If you have a questions or concern about a VVA class, contact the teacher of that class.

If you are ever unsure who to contact, please reach out to Katie Larimer (klarimer@mcps.org), Supervisor of Virtual Learning for MCPS.

Grades

Grades for Virtual Virginia (VVA) classes will come directly from VVA teachers. Students and families can see grades by logging into VVA. See this document for more detailed information.

At the end of each MCPS grading period, students' current final grades in VVA classes will be added to PowerSchool (Parent and Student Portal).

Family Support and Involvement

Virtual Virginia (VVA) has Parent Auditor Accounts that allow families to stay current on student progress in classes. MCPS has created Parent Auditor Accounts for each student based on the contact information in PowerSchool. For more information about Parent Auditor Accounts, please see the VVA website. If changes need to be made to your auditor account, please reach out to Katie Larimer (klarimer@mcps.org).
