Southern Door School District hopes its partnership with Rural Virtual Academy will be able to help provide a valuable resource for its area children and staff members. Announced earlier this week, Rural Virtual Academy will allow students both enrolled in the district and homeschool the opportunity to take online courses on a full-time or part-time basis. Superintendent Patti Vickman says it is an opportunity to reach out to the limited number of families in the district that are homeschooled and give other students a chance to get familiar with online learning.
Southern Door becomes one of 20 other rural schools to join the online academy’s consortium. To learn more about Southern Door’s partnership with the Rural Virtual Academy, the district will host an informational open house on June 12 from 4-6 p.m. inside the high school library.
