Students will receive additional support from the VTVLC Student Support Staff, who will monitor their weekly progress. VTVLC coursework is licensed and specifically designed for students to learn online. Each teacher will have “online office hours” so students can reach out and receive additional help when needed. These sessions will be “synchronous”, meaning they will be meeting either via Zoom or Google Meets. In addition, much of the work which is being done online can be done “asynchronously”, meaning at time that is convenient for both the student and family if support is needed from home. Assignments will be based on weekly work, and not daily, ensuring that a more flexible learning environment can be adapted to each student.

High school courses help support students develop self-direction and improve their communication skills. Assessments include: pre-assessments, discussion forums, discussion-based assessments, collaboration activities, and written assessments. Re-assessments are offered with teacher feedback helps build student proficiency. Core academics are NCAA aligned and standards based.

Collaborative Diploma Program (CDP)

This program allows students who live in a town with a non-operating school (sometimes called a choice town or tuition town) the option of earning their high school diploma from a geographically distant Vermont public high school. Supported by VTVLC, students can work with a CDP school and enroll in core academic courses, electives, project-based learning, and even health and personal fitness courses entirely online.

Students will work with an advisor/mentor from their CDP school, and be supported by VTVLC teachers holding both Vermont content area endorsements and the additional Online Teaching Specialist (OTS) endorsement. In addition, a student success coach and a team of VTVLC staff will be available to assist students with everything from technical questions to time management.
