8.4.20 Full Year Virtual Academy Messenger
Dear Parent / Guardian:
Thank you for choosing to enroll your student in the WCPSS Virtual Academy at Green Hope High School for the full 2020-21 school year.
We are currently finalizing our master schedule as well as other information and resources. We will soon be providing you with the following information:
- Your student’s daily schedule which includes live instruction times
- Your student’s assigned teachers
- Devices and accessibility
- A schedule for picking up instructional materials if necessary
Teachers will be providing information regarding the Learning Management System (LMS), specific class/course information, as well as any school supplies your student may need.
Generally speaking, families can expect that students will have some learning experiences each day for which they will need to be in attendance and engaged during specific hours of the day. Students and families should expect instruction to happen Monday through Friday. Students will receive approximately 5-6 hours of instruction and/or instructional activities per day, with at least 2 -3 hours of live instruction per day. Times may increase beyond the baseline based on teacher planning.
Students will have flexibility to work at their own pace over the course of the day depending on family needs. Consistent daily schedules will include online instruction that will be a combination of live and recorded sessions. The schedule will also include device-free breaks and flexible times for students to meet virtually in smaller groups.
More information will be provided soon from our school and district if you requested support with technology and/ or access.
If this confirmation letter does not accurately reflect your WCPSS Virtual Academy application request, please contact our school.
Thank you, and we look forward to a successful start to the school year.
