Attention STUDENTS: Tips for Logging in to Canvas and Accelerate Learning


Updates for LSVA (December 16, 2021)

Hi Parents and Students:

The end of LSVA Semester 1 is January 21st. Some of our local school districts have different semester end dates. Your student will follow the end dates for LSVA courses as the 21st of January and their in person classes according to their local district schedule.  Students should check with their teachers for specific dates.

If your child is returning to in person school starting 2nd Semester, they will need to follow the local districts schedule.  However, they will have until Jan 21st or teacher due dates for any LSVA course work they need to complete. Any questions, please contact your local district office for more information.

If your student is continuing with an LSVA course or courses, you have to call the LOCAL DISTRICT office to inform them and discuss what courses your student needs for the second semester.  This deadline for SEMESTER 2 enrollment is January 7th and no changes can be made after that date.

Attached are the course lists.  Please make sure the elective(s) courses your student takes is appropriate for their grade, age and skills. Elective descriptions can be found at Again, this should be discussed with your local district personnel/guidance counselor to ensure your student is taking what he/she needs.

Grades will be mailed to you after the 21st, as soon as districts can record them in PowerSchool. 

PLEASE make sure your student is doing work. I have sent out information for you to login to Canvas and GenNet to check student progress. Please check on this.

If your child fails a course, please call the school to see if returning in person is required.
