About Los Angeles Virtual Academy

Los Angeles Virtual Academy works with schools to offer schools and students three basic formats for online learning. The first format includes online courses where the teacher uses an online course with students in class. The teacher monitors students and provides face to face instruction where needed. Mastery-based learning is utilized in most cases so students can use prior learning to work only with the content not mastered in order to recover credit.

In the second format the credentialed teacher is online. These classes are primarily used where courses are hard to staff or where scheduling problems exist. The school provides a teacher who facilitates the online learning process. The teacher-facilitator takes attendance, provides logistical support to the student, communicates with the online instructor, and issues grades determined in cooperation with the online instructor to the student.

The third format includes regular in-seat classroom courses where the teacher uses online course material to supplement the instruction. The teacher takes attendance, provides instruction and assigns grades as in regular classrooms.
