The Middle School PCVA Student Experience
Students will receive the majority of their content delivered through an online program called Odysseyware, with monitoring and assistance provided by PCVA certified teachers. Odysseyware offers English, Math, Science, and Social Studies instruction, along with elective opportunities. PCVA will provide a Google Chromebook for students to use for the coursework, but families are responsible for providing reliable Internet access and a supportive environment for online learning.
Although Odysseyware is aligned to the South Carolina Academic Standards and is user-friendly, there is no replacement for a caring, classroom teacher who builds a relationship with your child. We cannot emphasize enough how important a partnership between teachers and parents is for this choice of learning. This partnership is key to success.
Teachers will provide recommendations and strategies to support students learning virtually and for parents/guardians who partner with us in this endeavor. Every effort will be made to continue providing support services to students. These will include Individual Education Programs (IEP), Gifted and Talented (GT), 504 plans, and others. Please note that students who receive services through an IEP must attend virtual sessions scheduled by the special education team lead and/or therapists.
