Kids Goals.png

What goals do you have for your learners this year?

The learning process is an endless journey of discoveries and challenges that have the power to transform. Each learning moment builds character, forms dreams, guides futures and strengthens the community. But sometimes, finding a one-size-fits-all solution that works for all of your learners can be a challenge. Students’ needs are increasing, but your resources aren’t. That’s why leaders in education are turning to online courses to bridge the gap.

That’s where we can help.

We understand your challenges. The RVA is centered around removing the obstacles for the individual learners with unique challenges, talents and abilities in your district. We provide you the support you need to help them achieve their personal best all while the student stays in your district. Our program customizes unique opportunities for learners at every stage of their educational journey; solutions that will seamlessly blend into your education program.

Blended Learning - A Student Centric Approach

The Digital Aspect

Digital learning is about more than just adding technology in your classrooms. It’s utilizing digital course materials, online learning management systems, and virtual classrooms and teachers — to deliver the best possible educational solution to your students.

To truly enhance PreK-12 education, we combine online and blended learning with the traditional classrooms, integrating complex organizational design and new technologies, and give every student equal access to personalized, interactive learning.

Endless Possibilities

When you implement student-focused, teacher-powered online and blended learning in your district, you open the door to a world of new solutions and ease the pressure a diverse student population creates. This allows you to:

  • Expand access to more students who are physically challenged or lacking access to specialized teachers.
  • Provide more opportunities and choices to students like credit recovery, career and technical education, and advanced STEM courses.
  • Offer students with unique challenges the opportunity to teach them the way they learn best.

Courses that Engage

Aligned to national standards, our interactive curriculum includes electives, honors, Advanced Placement, and Career & Technical Education courses. RVA courses are designed to engage all types of students, including:

  • Advanced learners looking for a challenge
  • College and career-minded students
  • Amateur athletes and performers
  • Students trying to catch up or get ahead
  • Homebound youth or students unable to be physically present in a classroom

Our curriculum has been repeatedly tested and proven by RVA. Our experience and flexible implementation options provide the tools you need to engage students, personalize instruction, and prepare learners for success.

 

Empowering your Teachers

As today’s classroom evolves, teachers remain the true key to student engagement and success. Our program is created to empower your teachers, not replace them. Schools use RVA courses to maintain school budgets, expand curriculum, overcome space or staffing limitations, and personalize learning.

RVA Empowers You To Unlock Student Learning:

  • Customize courses with discrete RVA lessons not tied to course sequencing
  • Deliver state-specific content provided by RVA
  • Customize lesson sequencing and navigation
  • Include open-source or teacher-created learning resources between RVA lessons

 

Blended Learning Implementation

Blended Learning

Rotation model

Program in which students rotate on a fixed schedule between learning online in a one-to-one, self-paced environment and learning in the classroom. The following terms illustrate variations of the rotation-model implementation:

Station rotation: Within a given course or subject, students rotate on a fixed schedule between classroom-based experiences. The rotation includes at least one segment for online learning, and then other segment(s) for activities such as teacher-led small-group or full-class instruction, group projects, and pencil-and-paper assignments.

Lab rotation: Within a given course or subject, students rotate on a fixed schedule among locations on the physical campus. One is a learning lab for self-guided, predominantly online learning and the other(s) are classroom(s) for teacher-led instruction.

Individual rotation: Within a given course or subject, students rotate on a fixed schedule and on an individual, adaptive basis among various modalities, such as online learning, face-to-face tutoring, face-to-face seminars, and projects.

Flex model

Delivers most of the curriculum through an online platform in a supervised brick-and-mortar setting. Teachers provide face-to-face support on a flexible and adaptive as-needed basis through individual tutoring, small-group sessions, and/or full-class experiences.

Enriched model

Students take one or more courses entirely online to supplement their traditional courses. Students may take the online courses on-site or off-site of the brick-and-mortar campus. This differs from pure virtual schooling because students attend a brick-and-mortar campus for their remaining courses.

Remote model

Delivers most of the curriculum using an online, digital platform. Students learn predominantly off campus.

Made Affordable through Partnerships

Flexible online learning opportunities have been greatly limited to full-time online learning students for the past decade.  Simply put, digital learning is expensive.  In the past, school districts could not support both the infrastructure of traditional schools and infuse digital content.  However, for the first time ever, digital content can now be a fiscally responsible choice.  This is made possible by your district’s partnership with the RVA.

Membership Options.jpg

Membership Options

We don't do one size fits all at the RVA!

Our membership options put your district in the driver’s seat.

Single-Year Affiliated Membership

Low Risk.  Single year shared service agreement

Students Stay Yours.  Partnering with the RVA allows students access to local athletics, in-district programming, and allows more per pupil dollars to stay local.

Local Control.  Your district maintains control over decisions such as graduation requirements, monitoring student academic progress, special education services, athletic eligibility, and more.

Turn-key solution.  Why reinvent the wheel?  Providing access to flexible learning solutions takes time, years of planning and implementation, infrastructure, and ongoing professional development.  The RVA provides a turn-key solution to flexible learning options for districs looking to collaboratively partner.  Partnership includes access to the learning management system, over 500 different courses, and on-going professional development.

Fiscally Responsible.  Negotiated per pupil cost is always lower than open enrollment for full-time enrollments and allows access to volume savings on online digital course content.  We incentivize agreements to encourage districts to keep students connected to their local schools and programming.  The more your students participate in programming, the lower the per pupil rate.

High Quality.  Promoted by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction as an effective and quality option for districts when looking for flexible online learning solutions, the RVA operates and serves the public with the highest levels of accountability and satisfaction.  Look no further than to what our parents and students have to say about the RVA in our published annual performance reports.

Full-time Virtual School Access.  The RVA provides year-round, full-time, virtual school access for families seeking flexible learning options.

Digital Learning Options for All.  Affiliate members are provided digital learning access in local brick and mortar schools for students and teachers seeking blended or other flexible digital learning opportunities.

Free Training. Professional development is provided for staff looking to implement blended learning solutions in district classrooms.

Multi-year Invested Membership

(Must have been an affiliated partner for at least 1 year prior to being considered for invested membership.)

Revenue Sharing.  Invested membership is the most fiscally responsible choice.  Invested members share in both costs and revenue, historically making the per pupil costs affordable at a level below open enrollment and affiliate member rates.  Invested members are also provided access to volume savings on online digital course content at a rate lower than affiliated members.  

A Seat at the Table.  Invested members are provided voting access on the school’s governance board helping direct the RVA’s operations.

It’s Your School.  Invested members create an RVA entity in your district’s student information system allowing for pupils to be accounted for locally.

Local Control.  Your district maintains control over decisions such as graduation requirements, monitoring student academic progress, special education services, athletic eligibility, and more.

Turn-key Solution.  Why reinvent the wheel?  Providing access to flexible learning solutions takes time, years of planning and implementation, infrastructure, and ongoing professional development.  The RVA is able to provide all districts a turn-key solution to flexible learning options.  We provide you the learning management system, take care of enrollments into courses, and provide all necessary training for district staff.

High Quality.  Promoted by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction as an effective and quality option for districts to consider when looking for flexible digital learning solutions, the RVA operates and serves the public with the highest levels of accountability and satisfaction.  Check out our published annual performance reports to read what our parents and students have to say about us.
