Welcome LISD Middle School Parents,
The Virtual Learning Academy offers a selection of courses for LISD middle school students. These courses are available beginning after students' completion of 6th grade. VLA courses are available for 3 terms; fall, spring, and summer. All VLA courses are taught by LISD teachers.
During the School Year: As an LISD middle student, they are permitted to take 1 total credit per year. Each half credit course is taken at an 18 week pace. The course must be completed outside of the school day. Each A or B course listed is only worth 0.5 credit. To receive the full 1 credit, both the A and B must be taken.
Summer Term: 1 total credit is allowed to be taken during the summer. Each A or B course listed is only worth 0.5 credit. To receive the full 1 credit, both the A and B must be taken.
The grade earned in a VLA course will not count toward high school GPA unless the course is taken after 8th grade. The course name and final grade will be listed on the high school transcript.
