Are you looking to catch up, stay engaged, or get ahead on your credits?
WVS Courses can meet your Summer School needs...
Enrollments accepted through June 30, 2017 (Start date no later that 6-30-17)
NOTE: WVS does not allow enrollments in both semesters of the same course at the same time.
On February 25, 2015, District Administrators received a letter from DPI clarifying changes on offering online courses in the summer.
"If online course offerings are provided on-site by DPI-licensed teachers, districts may count instructional minutes (see next item) provided through eligible online courses for resident students for state aid and revenue limit purposes. Starting in 2014, certain online courses no longer require resident students to be on-site if specific eligibility criteria are met. Online classes must comply with all other state summer school requirements (e.g., fees, partnerships, academic courses, etc.) to be eligible to count students for membership. The school district must document and retain records used in the calculation of the instructional minutes generated for each class that is included for the DPI Pupil Count Summer School report."
This change makes it easy for school districts to offer more options for students to make up credits or accelerate their learning paths. Students can choose from high school and middle school core and elective courses, as well as High School Credit Recovery courses. WVS does not recommend Advanced Placement courses for summer due to the amount of rigor and subject material to be covered.
Please see the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction’s 2016 Summer School Guidelines for online high school course eligibility for summer school membership.
Consider staffing your summer school using your OWN certified teachers and providing them flexibility as well. Contact us for more information on training and utilizing your own teachers ($150 per semester course)!
The course fee is $295 for HS and MS courses, and $200 for Credit Recovery (half-credit semester courses). A maximum of five months access is allowed for HS and MS courses. A maximum of 20 weeks access is allowed for Credit Recovery course. For more information about options for credit recovery please visit our website: http://www.wisconsinvirtualschool.org/crcourses.cfm
Many schools want to follow a “typical summer school schedule” and allow students a specific 6-8 week summer session for their online courses. With enrollments accepted through June 30, you can “design” the right number of weeks and dates you want for YOUR summer program.
It is strongly recommended that students enroll in no more than ONE semester course during the summer. Past experience has shown that students who are given a completion deadline similar to the local summer school session are more likely to finish the online course than if they are allowed to work into the fall.
PLEASE NOTE: Health and Physical Education courses require a minimum of 12 weeks of fitness/health journals/logs.
It is imperative that a Local Education Guide (LEG) or mentor be available to act as a liaison between the student and the WVS teacher during the summer.
