    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 assigned lessons each school day, along with a homeroom teacher who meets with students one-on-one and in small groups on a weekly basis. Students will be engaged in work 18-22 hours per week.
    LVS Middle School and High School program uses the Buzz curriculum. This is a more student-driven/teacher-led program. Our teachers teach live online lessons during the week. Learning coaches are responsible for ensuring that students are progressing in their courses, logging into classes and help sessions, attending bi-monthly conferences, and turning in assignments. Students will be engaged in work 25-40 hours per week.
