Jefferson Virtual Academy
Jefferson Virtual Academy (JVA) is designed as a virtual learning environment for students and families seeking an alternative to a traditional, in person learning experience. The JVA program is staffed and designed to support Jefferson County Schools’ mission to ensure that all students achieve academic success, value themselves and others, contribute to their communities, and succeed in a global society.
Jefferson Virtual Academy continues to evolve in response to the changing needs of students and their families, and as our tools and resources to support virtual learning grow and change. For the 2021-2022 school year, our virtual students are supported by full-time elementary educators, middle and high school mentors, and special educators, as well as part-time adjunct faculty who are employed by Jefferson County Schools and certified educators who are employed by our online vendors. Students access their virtual instruction through Canvas, Odysseyware, and/or WV Learns.
For additional information about the 2021-2022 virtual program, please reference the JVA Memorandum of Understanding, JVA Orientation, and JVA Update Webinar links on the left. Details regarding the Jefferson Virtual Academy for the 2022-2023 school year will be coming soon.
How do I enroll in virtual learning? Students and families interested in virtual learning for the 2022-2023 school year can share their interest with their school counselor during the scheduling process.
Requests to change to/from virtual instruction outside the annual scheduling process are managed through the Student Assistance Team (SAT) process. To request a change from in-person TO virtual instruction, please contact your student’s school of record to request SAT meeting. To request a change FROM virtual instruction to return to in-person, please contact your student’s mentor or Mrs. FitzGerald, Coordinator of Virtual Learning, to request a SAT meeting.
