The Ver­mont Vir­tual Learn­ing Coop­er­a­tive works with Ver­mont schools to facil­i­ate online courses for stu­dents statewide. Our goal is to over­come the three most com­mon bar­ri­ers that pre­vent stu­dents from tak­ing the courses they want or need in schools. These bar­ri­ers are avail­abil­ity of courses, acces­si­bil­ity to courses and the flex­i­bil­ity of your edu­ca­tion. For exam­ple, are you inter­ested in tak­ing a course that is not avail­able at your school? VTVLC finds the course you want to take from another Ver­mont school that offers that course online. Is there a course that you want to take at your school that you can­not access because you are required to take a dif­fer­ent class dur­ing the same sched­ule time? VTVLC works with your school to give you access to the courses you want dur­ing a time that works for you by offer­ing the course online. All courses offered by VTVLC online are acces­si­ble from any­where, any­time. Whether you learn best at 1 am or 1 pm, at school or at home, your online courses are only a click away.

Is VTVLC accredited?

VTVLC works under a cooperative model. Each course is offered by a Ver­mont pub­lic / approved independent school, each school is accred­ited inde­pen­dently through (primarily) NEASC. The course cur­ricu­lum is licensed from Florida Vir­tual School which is accred­ited by two major agen­cies: The South­ern Asso­ci­a­tion of Col­leges and Schools (SACS) and The Com­mis­sion on Inter­na­tional and Trans-​Regional Accreditation.

VTVLC does not cur­rently grant a diploma. Instead, cred­its are trans­ferred back to the student’s local school and count toward their grad­u­a­tion require­ments.

Part­ner Schools are Ver­mont schools that pro­vide at least one licensed Ver­mont teacher to facil­i­tate a VTVLC online course. Stu­dents who attend a Part­ner School are eli­gi­ble to enroll in our courses at no cost to the stu­dent dur­ing the reg­u­lar school year, as approved by the school coun­selor.

There’s more to taking a VTVLC course than reading online text and clicking through a few screens. VTVLC courses are nothing like old fashioned correspondence courses. With photos, videos and interactive activities—plus dedicated, highly qualified, licensed educators for every course—personalization becomes part of your learning experience. Teachers and students interact regularly through email, telephone conversations, and various synchronous web tools.  Taking a course with us means getting the chance to be really involved in your learning. And, with an entire catalog full of online course choices, there is something for everyone.

VTVLC “coordinates” student learning through a team approach in conjunction with technology based tools and content.

The team includes the VTVLC Faculty, VTVLC Student Learning Support, School Counselors and Local Student Support.  Every VTVLC course is taught by a highly qual­i­fied Ver­mont licensed instruc­tor — experts in their sub­ject areas. Teach­ers and stu­dents inter­act reg­u­larly through email, tele­phone con­ver­sa­tions, and var­i­ous syn­chro­nous web tools.  The VTVLC Stu­dent Learn­ing Sup­port Team is here for you!  We work with everyone involved in the student’s support team to help students accomplish their learning goals.  School counselors are integral in helping students establish their personalized learning plans, which often includes VTVLC courses.  Every partner school should also have local student support to assist students in their learning process.  This may be a school counselor, technology integration specialist, classroom teacher, paraprofessional, librarian or any other school designated person.

Do students get an actual teacher?

Every VTVLC course is taught by a highly qual­i­fied Ver­mont licensed instruc­tor — experts in their sub­ject areas. Teach­ers and stu­dents inter­act reg­u­larly through email, tele­phone con­ver­sa­tions, and var­i­ous syn­chro­nous web tools.  As students work through the modules of a course, they connect with their teachers to take exams online and discussion-based assessments over the phone or video conference. Students do the work at their own pace and on their own time, but are expected to stay on pace.

Teach­ers are avail­able dur­ing sched­uled office hours and by appoint­ment. Stu­dents are encour­aged to con­tact the teacher when there is a need of any kind. Teach­ers reg­u­larly speak via tele­phone or video conference with stu­dents and their par­ents.
