If you cannot keep your virtual coaching session:
⦁Your attendance is based on keeping both your learning and coaching sessions and showing the work you have done.  
⦁As required by law, students who miss three consecutive sessions/days or 80% of an instructional week will be provided additional supports. If non-participation continues, the student may be dropped from the program and returned to their home school.

⦁We encourage parents/guardians to contact PVUSD Virtual Academy whenever they have questions or need information about their student or any school policy.
Parent/Guardian Responsibilities
The major objective of Independent Study is to provide a voluntary educational alternative for students.  Parents are always welcome and invited to attend the virtual coaching sessions with their child’s supervising teacher.  Usually students are more successful when parents are involved.  Parent/guardian responsibilities include:
⦁Supervise and review their child’s daily work, assignments and student evaluations
⦁Ensure that their child attends his/her virtual coaching sessions
⦁Confer regularly with the supervising teacher to discuss their child’s progress
⦁Review student’s Personalized Learning Plan
