Announcing BSD Virtual Academy

Please find details of the email sent to parents last week about a virtual option for elementary students for the 2021-2022 school year:

Hello Families,

This email is for families that are interested in the BSD Virtual Academy for fall.  This message is not for those who plan for their student to attend in-person for fall, 2021.

Bellevue School District is planning to fully reopen schools in the fall.  The remote learning model that has been in place during the current school year will no longer be offered.  If your family has health concerns due to COVID that make it unsafe for your child(ren) to return to K-5 classrooms in the fall we are offering the Bellevue Virtual Academy as an online option for K-5 students.

Students enrolled in the Virtual Academy will interact with online curriculum that is aligned to Washington State Standards and supported by highly qualified certificated teachers. We are considering using Edgenuity as the platform for delivery.  Students will be able to continue to progress toward grade level standards in the major subject areas.  The Virtual Academy does not replicate any of the BSD Choice Programs, i.e. Spanish Immersion, Jing Mei, Advanced Learning.

Learn more about Edgenuity by watching this video.

Families who are interested in the Bellevue Virtual Academy for next fall should complete an enrollment request, Please complete the request form by Wednesday, May 26th.
