Virtual option moves from CRVA and Edgenuity to Edgenuity only

As we have navigated through the pandemic, Cedar Rapids Community School District (CRCSD) has provided a variety of ways that students and families can engage in learning. One of the learning opportunities CRCSD has recently provided is the Cedar Rapids Virtual Academy (CRVA). CRCSD announces that, beginning with the 2022-2023 school year, it will no longer offer CRVA in its original format.

CRCSD has learned from its current structures what educational options work best within its system to serve students and families. As we plan for instruction for the 2022-2023 school year, CRCSD will offer a virtual option for K-8 learners. The option CRCSD will provide is Edgenuity, an online learning program for students where they complete age-appropriate, engaging lessons with access to tools that support learning, including text-to-speech, audio and translation, text and picture dictionaries, and more. Edgenuity offers a self-paced flexible option in which students are expected to make daily progress on assignments and lessons. Educators will not provide direct instruction to students, but they will monitor student progress and performance with usage statistics, grading and feedback tools, curriculum maps, and communication tools.

If you have questions about this virtual platform or are interested in this option for your child/children, please reach out to your building principal. Thank you for your partnership and support.
