VLA is a robust, online educational delivery system. It offers 250 full-year and semester courses for students in grades K-12. Each course is fully aligned to Ohio's Academic Content Standards. VLA can be used to service any student who the superintendent deems necessary including those who are:
- home schooled
- in need of credit reclamation
- dropped out
- special needs/at risk
- assigned to alternative schools
The VLA program consists of four user modules:
Student •Teacher• Parent •Point of Contact (Administrative Liaison)
Students may access the curriculum in three ways:
- a content-only screen
- an assessment-only screen
- a split screen showing both content and assessment
The Teacher component is similar to the student component except for the additional features such as answer keys, gradebooks, seat times, and reports.
The Parent component is read-only.
The Point of Contact component (for school counselors, principals, supervisors, curriculum specialists) allows district personnel to monitor student/teacher seat time progress and receive all VLA-related correspondence. VLA also includes an internal email system, video streaming, audio features, and forum functionality.
