2 Welcome Dear North Wasco School District families, North Wasco Virtual Academy is a public school using an innovative model to provide your child with the best education possible. Our unique educational approach allows us to tailor an education that is specific to each learner. North Wasco Virtual Academy uses the award-winning K 12 and Aventa curriculum, which has been developed by some of the best minds in education. This rigorous, content-rich curriculum meets or exceeds state standards across all subject areas. Students demonstrate their knowledge and skills through state standardized tests. By enrolling in our school, you are partnering with a team of knowledgeable and experienced educators. Highly qualified teachers work with you in monitoring student progress, attendance, and content mastery while providing professional insight, instruction, and support. Our administrative staff is committed to the success of every child in the program.

Not only are we proud of our school, but we also believe it is a profoundly good choice for families who are interested in getting actively involved in their children's education. At North Wasco Virtual Academy, we know that choosing the right educational setting for your child is not a decision to be taken lightly. We encourage you to learn more about our program and how it may benefit your child. Our dedicated staff is here to assist you as you go through this exciting endeavor. On behalf of all of us here at North Wasco Virtual Academy, we hope to welcome you soon to our school community. North Wasco Virtual Academy Leadership Team North Wasco Virtual Academy Leadership Team Why North Wasco Virtual Academy? NWVA North Wasco Virtual Academy Exceptional Online Education for Grades K-12 Tuition-free, fully accredited public school that uses the K12 program Individualized Learning Plan tailored to your child s unique needs Proven combination of online curriculum and hands-on materials Instruction from passionate, experienced teachers who are committed to helping your student achieve his or her potential Programs for advanced learners Active, vibrant community, including clubs and social events A high school diploma that meets or exceeds all state requirements The nation s largest network of support for families, including extensive local options and programs for new parents

3 Our Guiding Principle Individualized education for all. As America s K 12 online education leader for more than a decade, K12 has a singular focus: to help your child reach his or her true, personal potential. It all starts with the award-winning K 12 and Aventa online curriculum and learning methodology, based on decades of cognitive research. Combined with North Wasco Virtual Academy s passionate educators and socially active learning community, we put into motion a 360-degree solution tailored to your child s specific needs. Instrumental to this proven method is the Individualized Learning Plan (ILP). This document is created to map out academic goals, course sequences, and instructional strategies based on your student s unique strengths and challenges. As a parent, you provide input to help teachers and school staff develop the ILP. You also participate as an active partner with teachers and your child throughout the learning process. K12 and its district partner schools like North Wasco Virtual Academy provide support, advice, and access to an extensive parent network to ensure you re never alone. Whether you have a child craving advanced learning opportunities or needing more support to master concepts, the K12 online schooling program surrounds students with the resources they need to succeed not just at every grade level, but also in college, in a career, and in life.

4 The Student Team Everyone plays a role. At district partner schools like North Wasco Virtual Academy, your child has the benefit of a powerfully effective student team a collaboration between teachers, counselors, senior school leadership, the school community, and you. In fact, as a parent, your role is so important we call you the Learning Coach or Mentor. Members of the student team work hand in hand, providing support, encouragement, and care. Together, we inspire your child to believe in his or her own abilities removing barriers to reaching the potential within. The difference with K12 is dramatic, says Laurel Barrette, K12 director of school counseling programs. Too many kids get put in a box. Students may be tracked into one group with one level of courses, even if their strengths vary by subject. If they do get placed in a more appropriate mix of Honors and non-honors courses, a stigma can be attached to the so-called easier courses. A really important thing we re able to do at K12 is look at the individual student in an accepting, open-minded way. We re able to put together a customized plan and meet kids needs, without them having to worry about what other people think.

5 The K 12 Program Every element plays a part. North Wasco Virtual Academy uses the award-winning K 12 and Aventa curriculum that s been created by cognitive scientists, interactive designers, and master teachers-many with advanced degrees. Decades of research about how children learn are combined with rich, dynamic content to make learning come alive. games. At K12, each course is designed to be online from the outset, unlike other curriculum providers that often scan a textbook and call it online education. Subject matter is carefully sequenced so that, from one grade to the next, students build new knowledge upon the strong foundations of what they ve already learned. This methodology incorporates everything from engaging audio, video, and illustrations to animated demonstrations and learning

6 Elementary and Middle School Our K 12 K 8 program taps into children s natural inquisitiveness, with courses that truly engage young minds and reinforce key concepts in meaningful ways. Each grade includes the four core subjects-language arts, math, science, and social studies-along with music and art, plus world language options beginning in third grade. Courses are flexibly paced, allowing students to move at the speed that best suits their needs. Those who are ready to move on to the next lesson or unit can do so, while those who require just a little more time may take it. Nearly all courses are complemented by a wealth of hands-on materials you d find in a traditional classroom, including illustrated children s stories, flash cards, counting blocks, magnifying glasses, inflatable globes, tambourines, paintbrushes, rock and mineral kits, and much more. Plus, the standard math courses in K-5 and a reading remediation course for grades 3-5 feature the latest adaptive technology that intelligently adjusts to your child s skill level, offering practice where it s needed most. As your child s Learning Coach in grades K-5, you ll typically spend 3 to 6 hours per day working side-by-side with your student, helping facilitate his or her progress through the lessons. You ll also have the close support of your online teacher via , phone, and one-to-one online meetings. In grades 6-8, students use the Aventa curriculum, which is designed in a rich, multimedia format that includes avatars, Flash simulators, and videos. Our online courses effectively engage students who might otherwise tune out. The graphic elements appeal to different learning intelligences, particularly to visual and kinesthetic learners who are often harder to engage through traditional teaching methods." Students are interactively involved in the Aventa Learning curriculum by being able to: click on the headset icon and listen to the text being presented, engage in simulations, including virtual labs and dialogs with avatars, participate in close activities which provide a structure to repeat and practice, and much more. High School Our program for grades 9-12 is highly individualized to students abilities in each subject, as well as their developing interests. Aventa Learning by K 12 has received national recognition for our thoroughly researched, carefully crafted, multi-media online curriculum. We offer more than 140 online courses for high school students. The breadth of our curriculum is extensive and includes Advanced Placement (AP) courses, core courses, world languages, and credit recovery courses with ELL support. Aventa is accredited through Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, and courses are in alignment with state standards.. As part of our commitment to staying current with leading-edge learning techniques, Aventa online courses are crafted based on recent research and education developments, including Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences Theory, research by Alan Cohen, and other important findings. Having grown up surrounded by computers and mobile phones, students are accustomed to multiple stimuli coming in at the same time. Traditional teaching methods can't always reach and influence this new generation of multi-tasking students. Aventa's online curriculum is designed to engage the igeneration. Designed in a rich, multimedia format that includes avatars, Flash simulators, and videos, our online courses effectively engage students who might otherwise tune out. The graphic elements appeal to different learning intelligences, particularly to visual and kinesthetic learners who are often harder to engage through traditional teaching methods. Below is a sampling of ways students are interactively involved in the Aventa Learning curriculum: Students can click on the headset icon and listen to the text being presented. Students can engage in simulations, including virtual labs and dialogs with avatars. Students can participate in close activities, which provide a structure to repeat and practice. Students can organize, categorize, match, and memorize through interactive graphics. Students may complete questions, self-assessments, and study guides.

7 Thanks for learning more about this important option you have for your child s education. So many families in North Wasco School District have made this choice, and they ve found how remarkably well their children do when learning comes alive. By removing barriers, we encourage children to have confidence in their ability to learn. That excitement about learning is the key to unlocking each child s highest potential. We hope you ll take the next step and look forward to working with you.
