The Virtual Academy of Allegan County (VAAC) is being designed in a collaborative effort among local, participating school districts to provide a 100% online educational option for students and families. It is important to note that this is vastly different from both a traditional in-person school experience and the spring 2020 emergency remote instruction. The VAAC provides online curriculum, interactive instruction and activities. There will be assessments, and students will earn actual grades and credits as part of staying connected to their local district. There are also required components of student participation and attendance as well as parental support and engagement.
Development Goals of VAAC
Goal #1: Provide a safe alternative school choice to students and families. Goal #2: Keep our students and families connected to their local school and community. Goal #3: Protect as many educational jobs within our county schools as possible.
