For District Enrolled Secondary Students, please talk to your guidance counselor regarding registration for OVA.
District Enrolled Elementary Students please reach out to Dr. Christopher Shultz at email@example.com.
All new and returning students who would like to participate in OVA will need to register.
Please click here to access OVA course selection.
The OVA facilitator and your school counselor can help you with making a decision on which courses would be best for your student.
Our district will utilize K12 (Grades K-5) and Edison Learning (Grade 6) for all elementary classes. Our district will utilize Edison Learning, K12, eDynamic, and Accelerate vendors for all secondary courses.
In addition to the option of full time OVA, students at the secondary level may take one or two online courses in combination with their building classes. To be considered for one or two online courses, the student must demonstrate that the course cannot be taken in the building. In addition, an online course may also be permitted if it augments the student’s pathway or course of study.
As a third option at the secondary level, students may also participate part-time (the remainder of the course work in combination with a CTE or TCHS program) in OVA if the student is enrolled in a CTE program or enrolled in TCHS. Parents/students are responsible for transportation in the event your child is participating in a CTE program or TCHS and a remainder of OVA courses.
It can take 5 business days or more to have a student begin OVA after the registration form is received and registration is complete. An OVA orientation meeting will be scheduled and a contract will be presented outlining parent and student responsibilities for all elementary students and OVA secondary students. Once the contract is agreed to and signed, the student will be enrolled in the OVA . Onboarding - logging into the computer, logging into courses, accessing help, etc. will occur virtually.
