AN INTRODUCTORY COURSE ON ONLINE EDUCATION

  • Iowa Virtual Academy invites Davenport area parents and students to  information session
  • Families can explore education options prior to the school’s Open Enrollment deadline

 

Iowa Virtual Academy (IAVA), a new tuition-free online program of the Clayton Ridge Community School District that offers highly individualized online education for Iowa students in grades K-6, is holding an information session in Davenport this Thursday, February 16. Parents and students are invited to attend the informal meeting to learn more about whether learning through an online public school might be a good alternative to the traditional brick-and-mortar public school.

 

Enrollment in Iowa Virtual Academy is open to students in grades K-6 who reside anywhere in the state of Iowa; however, they must submit an Open Enrollment Application by March 1, 2012 to be eligible to attend IAVA for its inaugural school year in 2012-2013. More details about the enrollment process can be found here: www.k12.com/IAVA/enroll.

 

Iowa Virtual Academy might be the right choice for a variety of students, including:

  • Advanced learners who are either performing above grade level in one or more subjects or are motivated to increase their knowledge beyond the basic course offerings in specific subjects.
  • Students who are seeking relief from bullying, or who have other safety concerns and need a safe and comfortable learning environment.
  • Students from military families, who might be prone to moving and changing schools more often than the average student.
  • Athletes and performers who need classes that can travel with them during practices, rehearsals, and competitions.
  • Struggling students who need more time to grasp concepts, or who may need an environment with fewer distractions.
  • Students looking to get more out of their education

Specific times and dates in the Davenport area are as follows:

 

Thursday, February 16

Hotel Blackhawk

200 E. 3rd Street

7:00 p.m.

 

Session attendees will be able to enjoy a short presentation about the program, meet school staff and have all their questions answered by knowledgeable Iowa Virtual Academy staff.
