One of the biggest obstacles has been overcoming communication issues between the on-site staff and the virtual teachers. There is a lot of training for teachers on the best ways to communicate, but there is also a big disconnect and students are caught in the middle. The school has taken additional measures with on-site staff to ensure that the first thing they do is reach out to the virtual teacher and establish a consistent line of communication.
Arizona Virtual Academy (AZVA) uses K12 inc.'s online curricula to offer Arizona students in grades K-12 a blended-learning experience.

In 2013-2014 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
There are currently no past timeline events for this school.
