Elementary Synchronous Instruction

The VVA teacher will facilitate engaging daily synchronous instruction, Q&A sessions, 1:1 and small-group instructional time for learners during the week. VVA teachers hold posted office hours for regular student and parent communication, create weekly instructional videos and content as needed, and facilitate course pacing with opportunities for remediation and enrichment. Synchronous session absences are reported to the local school for record-keeping per local school policy.
