PA Virtual provides the Learning Coach support by ensuring every student is assigned a teacher and is provided with the K12, Inc. curriculum, as well as their teacher’s weekly calendar and a Parent Regional Ambassador. Learning Coaches and students also receive student service support from their assigned Guidance Counselor and Family Support Coordinator to assist with non-academic, social, and emotional needs. Tech Support is available during and after school hours to address the technology needs of our families.
PA VIRTUAL OFFERS A VARIETY OF INSTRUCTIONAL FORMATS
Families may choose between one of these options or a mix of the two:
- Synchronous- Students attend live classes with PA-certified teachers and children across the Commonwealth
- Asynchronous- Students have a customizable schedule in a self-directed environment, supervised by a dedicated teacher
Adapting to your schedule, students and Learning Coaches use the K12, Inc. Online School for interactive and engaging lessons, which includes daily and weekly lesson plans. Principals, as the instructional leaders, partner with the teachers and parents to ensure student academic progress and success.
Students and teachers interact in regularly scheduled, live virtual classes using our Blackboard Collaborate™ learning management system.
