What is VLA?

The LISD Virtual Learning Academy (VLA) is the district's virtual campus for high school classes which has been in existence since 2007. VLA is authorized by the Texas Virtual School Network to provide fully online courses taught by LISD teachers who have completed a 30-hour course in the teaching of virtual classes. VLA currently has nearly 30 courses in their catalog. Students can take these classes as part of their campus or virtual learning schedule creating flexibility in their schedule by taking a combination of classes on campus and classes online through VLA. Students may take up to three VLA courses in a year.
