Welcome Message

  • Donna Henry          Welcome to the 2015-2016 School Year!


    At no time in history have secondary students had so much agency in designing personalized learning pathways. The A la Carte blended learning model adopted by Lewisville ISD in 2014 serves as the foundation of a robust course choice program that allows students to select from face-to-face, blended, and online courses.

    Each modality supports student learning in unique ways and, for the first time that I can recall in my 30+ years in education, teachers are truly able to personalize and differentiate instruction for all learners. Technology tools, adaptive learning software, and evolving curriculum and pedagogies drive part of this, but new blended learning models operationalize the possibilities in ways never before imagined.

     The Virtual Learning Academy staff is proud to support secondary campuses as they implement their blended learning plans in their face-to-face, blended, and credit recovery classes. And we are thrilled to be able to provide an increasing number of online courses designed and taught by VLA staff or offered through the Texas Virtual School Network.

    We are glad you are a part of our blendED family.  Please do not hesitate to let us know how we can help you, as students, parents or school staff, as you explore the many possibilities of blended learning.
