2021-2022 Bishop Virtual Learning Academy

We are pleased to announce plans to provide a Virtual Learning option for interested families next school year.  It's important to note that BVLA will operate very differently from the "distance learning" model we've grown accustomed to this past school year. (See English and Spanish flyers linked here.)

  • BVLA is structured as an Independent Study or Homeschool model, where students (with support from their household) complete work at home, independently, and at their own pace.
  • Weekly student-teacher progress checks will be required but daily classroom Zoom teaching sessions will no longer be the norm.
  • BVLA students will still be a part of their respective school (BES/HSMS/BUHS) but be enrolled via an Independent Study contract.
  • BVLA teachers will be specifically designated to the program while the rest of the BUSD teaching staff will be on site, with students every day in classrooms.

This is new territory for all of us and we'll be sure to share more information and details as we gauge our community's interest in this opportunity. If your family would like to learn more about BVLA please be sure to complete the interest form ASAP - https://forms.gle/bvafkozmhveg... (English) https://forms.gle/uwDfE6fRXKSh... (Español)

We look forward to continuing on this educational journey with you.
