What is Mount Vernon Virtual Learning?
Mount Vernon Virtual Learning (MVVL) is a flexible, fully remote K-12 option for students and families. MVVL may be a good fit for students who respond well to independent, self-paced learning or families who have concerns about returning to in-person instruction during COVID.
Students enrolled in MVVL have access to MVSD supports and resources. MVVL students, like all Mount Vernon students, will be issued a Chromebook. MVVL students will also continue to have access to extracurricular activities, clubs, and athletics.
About the Program
Elementary students will meet with their teachers once a week either individually or in small groups. All of the instruction is asynchronous with students working independently on a flexible schedule.
Secondary students will engage with their teachers during office hours. All of the instruction is asynchronous with students working independently on a flexible schedule.
Students will also have access to Virtual and in-person Support Labs. A schedule of Support Lab times for elementary and secondary students can be found on the MVVL events calendar .
In addition to weekly meetings and/or office hours, and Virtual Support Labs, students and families are encouraged to connect with their teacher(s) to schedule additional support time as needed. MVVL students and families will also have access to a local Student Support Specialist who will be responsible for your Written Student Learning Plan and is available to provide support.
Please review the MVVL Calendar for key dates including the first and last day of school, holidays, and weekly and monthly progress reporting.
