RVS Online Schools

RVS created two new online schools during the 2021/22 school year. These schools built on the successful RVS Online Learning offering from 2020/21 and introduced some changes to improve the virtual learning experience for students.

Instruction

Students are taught through a combination of real-time online video interaction and instruction, online activities/resources, pre-recorded videos and through independent work.

Students are not expected to be online all day. Teachers are available online during the school day to answer questions, problem solve with a student, or provide feedback during task completion. There are also opportunities for students to work at their own pace within the day, week or topic.

Students and parents/guardians receive ongoing teacher feedback on student performance. Teachers are accessible and here to help!
