7th and 8th grade students will enroll in all Core Subjects (Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts) and learn from certified Vermont Educators who also hold the Online Teaching Specialist Endorsement (OTS). Electives are available for a complete program. Schools continue to provide devices, meals and counseling.
Content specific synchronous sessions will be offered Monday-Friday 3:00-6:00 pm
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.
Middle 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.
