Online Public School Provides Educational Option for Students in
GARNAVILLO, Iowa–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Iowa
Virtual Academy (IAVA), an online public school program of the
Clayton Ridge Community School District, welcomes families to enroll for
the 2018-2019 school year. Currently in its sixth year of operation,
IAVA is available tuition-free to students in grades K-12 who reside
anywhere in the state. The school combines online instruction, rigorous
curriculum and the support of Iowa-licensed teachers to provide a
personalized experience for each student.
“Our school offers students an excellent public education in a unique
setting,” says Steve Hoff, IAVA’s Head of School. “Our dedicated
teachers partner closely with each family, building a foundation that
prepares our students for college and careers.”
Today IAVA provides an option for more than 300 Iowa families seeking an
alternative to brick-and-mortar schools. Through live and recorded
online class sessions, students and their teachers engage in the core
subjects of math, English/language arts, science, history, art, music
and physical education. In high school IAVA students have access to
electives, Advanced Placement® courses, and up to four levels
of world languages.
In addition to live online sessions, teachers regularly communicate with
students and families via email and phone. Students also have access to
resources such as books, workbooks and materials for offline projects.
Throughout the year, the IAVA community comes together for in-person
field trips, school outings and social events.
Students choose online school for a variety of reasons, including
advanced learners, students seeking an environment safe from bullies,
and students who require flexible schedules due to extracurricular
pursuits or medical needs. IAVA’s online platform gives students the
flexibility to pursue their academic goals in a supportive environment
and at a pace that is appropriate for them.
Students interested in enrolling in IAVA must submit an application
before the state’s open enrollment deadline of March 1, 2018 (September
1, 2018 for kindergarten). During the enrollment period, interested
families are invited to join online and in-person information sessions
throughout the state, to meet teachers, staff and other IAVA families to
learn more about the online school.
