How do I enroll?
SVL enrolls Elementary students through their local school within Spokane Public Schools. We work collaboratively with school principals and counselors to ensure every student is set up to succeed in their online learning journey.
If you are interested in SVL for one or more elementary classes, please contact your school's support staff or call our Elementary Support Specialist for more information.

Is SVL right for me?
Online learning offers a unique experience and certain flexibility that is not available in a traditional classroom. While the online environment is a great alternative for some students, it is important to ensure it will be a good fit for you, your style of learning, and can fit well with your other committments.

OUR ONLINE PROGRAMS
All of our curriculum is online and follows the scope and sequence of Spokane Public Schools classrooms. In addition to our online classroom: Blackboard, students may be asked to access their curriculum within a variety of online learning tools, based on each student’s individual needs.
What can you expect?
Time on Program:
Students must access online learning daily at approximately one hour per day per subject. Enrollment in all four subjects would mean at least 4 hours of online learning per day.
According to Washington state law, students must have weekly personal contact with their instructors. Direct personal contact shall be for the purposes of instruction, review of assignments, testing, reporting of student progress, or other learning activities.
Monthly Progress Report:
Every student and parent will receive a monthly progress report from their teacher. This will include information about the lessons completed and standards met. This report will be followed up with a phone call to discuss progress.
Your child’s online teacher will have regular office hours every week for your convenience. However, please feel free to contact their teacher at any time.
Spokane Public Schools students are required to take state assessments. SVL students will take these tests at their home school during their school’s designated testing window; typically in the Spring. More information on assessments can be found at the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) website: www.k12.wa.us.
In addition to state assessments, SVL uses NWEA’s Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) Testing for our Elementary students to help identify student strengths and fill any gaps in their learning. The data from the MAP testing helps SVL teachers to personalize the online material assigned to students. MAP Testing will be administered at the start of every school year (or upon student enrollment) and in the Spring with an optional testing window mid-year at teacher’s discretion.
