- Central Valley Virtual Learning Elementary School (CVVL) is a K-5 virtual learning program established as a Choice School two years ago for students and families who benefit from a flexible schedule. This setting is perfect for students who thrive with individualized learning, tailored to their academic level with individual and group support. Their work is guided by a highly qualified Central Valley teacher with a smaller class size to support personalized student needs. Some highlights include: focused, skill group instruction; the option for your child to participate in enrichment activities (coding, circuitry, art, etc.); and an optional in-person day each week for students to work in teams, develop friendships, go on field trips, and participate in hands-on learning opportunities. With this Alternative Learning Experience, you ultimately can choose how much involvement or support you would like for your child to receive.
- Progress Elementary is a K-5 Choice School that is dedicated to nurturing and guiding students' curiosity. Through inquiry-based learning, students are encouraged to develop deeper, tangible questions by inquiring and investigating topics as well as what draws their interest to discover answers.Students participate in "explorations" throughout the week by moving amongst classrooms to explore and investigate chosen topics of interest in greater depth. They are given the opportunity to collaborate with other learners while investigating related topics. We believe when curiosity is engaged, students are inclined to learn from each other and for themselves using a multitude of resources and 21st century skills. Progress cultivates a curious and caring community of learners. For more information, please contact the school at 509-558-4500 or visit the Progress website.
