School Overview

To stave off the growing trend of students leaving its program to take courses at various online school programs, Riverside Unified School District (RUSD) decided in 2005 to explore options for creating its own online initiative. District officials benchmarked models in Florida, Ohio, Kentucky, and Idaho, and pilot tested an Aventa Learning AP Statistics course and AP American Government course. The pilot test enrolled 36 students in the 2005-06 school years. By the fall of 2007, Riverside Virtual School (RVS) opened its doors to 585 students. The program delivered 1,551 course enrollments in 2008-09 and 3,661 in 2009-10. Although approximately 10 percent of students enrolled at Riverside Virtual School full time, the majority used the online school to supplement their course selection. At the same time, full-time RVS students had the option to enroll at a comprehensive high school for one or more classes'or for extracurricular activities'in a face-to-face environment.
