    LVS K-5th Grade Elementary program is a parent-led standards-based program. We use the K12 curriculum (we are not associated with K12 as a K12-run school; we only purchase their curriculum.). The parent (Learning Coach) works with the student daily on lessons each school day, along with a homeroom teacher who meets with students one-on-one and in small groups on a weekly basis.
    LVS Middle School and High School program uses the Buzz curriculum. This is a more student-driven/teacher-led program. Our Education Specialists teach lessons during the week. Learning coaches are responsible for ensuring that students are progressing in their courses, logging into classes and help sessions, attending biweekly conferences, and turning in assignments.

    LVS Application to Enroll Update:

    Due to marked increases in enrollment at the Lawrence Virtual School (LVS) for the 2020-2021 school year, the district has suspended LVS registrations until current applications can be processed. Registration may reopen in the future if space permits.

    The Distance Learning option for current Lawrence Public Schools' families does NOT require new student registration. Current families will receive information by email about choosing this option for a trimester (Early Childhood/Elementary) or a semester (Middle & High School) instead of participating in future Hybrid (On-Site/Remote) or In-Person models of instructional delivery when available.  


    ALL new students should complete New Student Registration regardless of their choice of future instructional delivery model options.
