VGV was chartered in 2013 to specifically develop and use the Edgenuity (formerly e2020) e-courseware for a high school 4-year program of study. At that time, online Edgenuity courses were primarily used by schools and school districts for students in need of credit recovery, summer school, and for those medically fragile students. Since 2013, the students and faculty of VGV have been pioneering the blending of e-curriculum with face-to-face teaching and learning.
VGV’s virtual curriculum model is based on:
In school year 2017-18, VGV merged Edgenuity with Google G Suite so that teachers could supplement Edgenuity courses with their own created materials to enhance student achievement. Every classroom teacher is required to maintain a Google Classroom for each class they teach in which they provide students with a course syllabus, assignments, and resources.
During COVID-19 related school closures, teaching and learning was communicated through Google Meet.
In school year 2021-22, VGV implemented IL Classroom’s (formerly LearnZillion) state approved high quality Illustrative Math (IM) for Algebra 1 (Grade 9), Geometry (Grade 10), and Algebra 2 (Grade 11).
In school year 2022-23, VGV implemented IL Classroom’s (formerly LearnZillion) state approved high quality Odell ELA curriculum for Grades 9 to 12.
Also in school year 2022-23, VGV implemented the Class platform—a classroom management system. Class allows teachers to control what students can view on their Chromebooks. Students are blocked from opening up other content than what the teacher wants them to see.
Edgenuity still remains the primary curriculum delivery system for science, history, and electives as originally chartered. Until 2021, there were no textbooks in VGV—all courses were virtual via a single platform—the Edgenuity platform.
