After we get your information, one of our learning specialists will reach out to help set up a schedule. We look forward to working with your family.
Students who wish to enroll in GVA while attending a Peninsula School District high school will complete the Initial Individualized Learning Plan in their high school counselor’s office. The counselor, parent, and student must sign this plan.
The plan then goes to the high school registrar who puts the course(s) in the student’s schedule. The high school registrar will send the Initial Learning Plan to the GVA registrar to be processed. Students and parents are sent an email from the Online Learning Specialist with instructions for beginning the course. Students are expected to begin within 72 hours of receiving this email.
What is a Student Learning Plan (SLP)?
All students sign Student Learning Plans (SLPs), which contain course expectations and learning goals. Our student learning plans tie the following basic set of expectations to each course's syllabus, specific learning targets and assessments.
Individual plans will vary depending on starting and ending dates as well as individualized needs or circumstances. In addition, these plans will be modified through an intervention plan if the Online Learning Specialist determines that the student is not making adequate monthly progress.
Please contact your school counselor to begin registration in GVA and complete your SLP for enrollment.
We offer an alternative to brick-and-mortar classes in a traditional high school. Students enter our program for a variety of reasons. The majority of our students take one or two online classes as part of their regular high school schedule. At school, students can work in the library, computer lab, or Career Center. Many students have these courses either first or sixth period, and are able to work online from home.
To enroll, part-time students first connect with their school counselor to complete a Student Learning Plan. There is a $25 lab fee per student, per semester.
We have several students that are in our program full time and take all of their classes online. Full-time students can participate in extracurricular activities, including athletics, music, drama, art, and hands-on technical classes at their home high school.
Students who wish to enroll in the Full-Time GVA Program complete the online enrollment request posted on the GVA website. The registrar will then email the link to the enrollment forms needed. After the forms are completed and turned in to the registrar, a meeting is set up with the Online Coordinator.
If accepted into the full-time program, students will be enrolled in Henderson Bay High School. All counseling, scheduling, and registration is handled by the Online Learning Specialist, Anne Mullen. The Online Coordinator also facilitates and documents all ALE processes including: Individualized Learning Plans, weekly contact, monthly assessment of adequate progress and Intervention Plans.
Full-time students are enrolled in a weekly Advisory class. This class serves as a homeroom. Students earn a .5 credit through goal-setting and communication, and completing lessons in social emotional learning.
