We chose to implement a blended model for our middle school in which the students attend face-to-face courses two times per week. We felt that this would support our students into becoming successful online learners.
Our high school students attend courses fully online.
The greatest challenge was finding or creating the course content for a blended environment. We began with purchased content from a vendor but have gradually evolved to district developed content. With district developed content, we can assure that the courses meet our state and district standards and we can update the course when needed.
Innovative instructional technologies are the backbone of NVLA’s instructional model. As the only fully accredited online school in the Clark County School District, we are at the forefront of anytime-anywhere learning. We offer online courses for both full-time and part-time students to provide an accredited, comprehensive, online education that prepares students with the 21st century skills required to become successful members of the global community. Students can take classes online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to earn credits and obtain their high school diploma while gaining valuable technology skills.
NVLA has expanded to offer courses for students in grades six through eight as part of our new blended learning instructional middle school model beginning the 2015-2016 school year. NVLA is a large part of CCSD’s goal to integrate technology and personalized learning for over 100,000 students. We look forward to providing additional innovative, engaging, and effective online instruction to students throughout CCSD and across the state of Nevada.
