Students

The type of students served in the Virtual Program varies. Virtual serves students who are unable to attend traditional full day programs due to employment or family obligations, students who have had attendance challenges, students who are not comfortable in large direct instruction classes, and student who are credit deficient and are looking for an individualized approach to work at their own pace and explore options to accelerate course completion.

Student-Teacher Contact Requirements

The instructional model for the Virtual Program is designed around the Washington State Alternative Learning Experience or ALE guidelines. Students in Virtual have individually developed student learning plans based on their academic and credit needs. Most students attend classes twice a week on campus for two or three hours each day of on-site attendance. The on-site scheduled time is used for students to work on APEX coursework in a computer lab setting with a highly qualified certificated teacher to support the specific academic area of each student. Students have face to face regularly scheduled meeting time with the program coordinator for academic support and progress monitoring.
