VISTA VIRTUAL SCHOOL The Vista Virtual School is specifically designed to provide students ongoing learning opportunities and access to the resources necessary to support their educational, social-emotional, nutritional, and health and safety needs.
At the high school level, students will have virtual learning experiences for each of the courses on their schedules through  Google Classroom, websites, videos, email, and other virtual tools.  Students will engage in a variety of assignments, instruction, collaboration, projects, and learning tasks for each of their courses with weekly schedules posted on each school's website. Teachers will provide daily communication and timely feedback, and students will have the opportunity to ask questions and get extra help through email, Google Classroom, and other virtual tools.

VATC Virtual School

Instruction in the Vista Virtual School environment for VATC will be tailored to the same unique classes that your students had before school closures began. Students will receive instruction and be assigned coursework online through virtual media, including, but not limited to: Google Classroom, email, class websites and/or video-conferencing tools such as Google Meets or Zoom. Students should check their school email and/or Google Classrooms daily for updated instruction, assignments, and assessments. 

VATC has created a suggested daily schedule that students may follow. We recognize that in some cases, it may not be possible for students to follow the suggested learning schedule.  All learning content will be available and accessible to students outside of the timeframes outlined in the suggested schedule. Students will also have opportunities to access their teachers for extra help or support throughout each week.

Vista Virtual School (VVS) includes embedded supports to ensure that students with special education needs have, to the maximum extent possible, equitable access and comparable learning opportunities. While it is not possible to implement all components of your student’s IEP during school closure, your student's special education teacher/case manager and related service providers remain committed to supporting you and your student(s) within the VVS learning platform. These supports will be outlined for you in what is called your student's "Distance Learning Plan". This plan provides you and your IEP team the flexibility necessary to adapt and respond to the evolving needs of your student(s) and your family during these uncertain times.
