Secondary Synchronous Instruction

Virtual Virginia promotes meaningful interactions between K–12 learners and instructors through time-based or task/product-based measures of attendance. A meaningful interaction is defined as two-way engagement with a student and staff that allows some sort of feedback or input from the student on successes and challenges.

For secondary students (grades 6–12), interactions with teachers or appropriate school staff are structured to support daily engagement through a variety of formats, including synchronous group instruction, synchronous 1:1 instruction, email communications, assignment feedback, and engagement in a course discussion board, in addition to logging in to the VVA learning management system.

VVA secondary teachers provide daily synchronous instruction to students. Synchronous sessions are recorded for any students unable to attend, and recordings are posted in the Virtual Virginia courses. All students are responsible for the content presented during the synchronous sessions.

  • Monday–Thursday: Content exploration, practice, discussion, question-and-answer
  • Friday: Small-group and 1:1 sessions, by appointment
