Leman Virtual Academy is a Public Virtual Charter School which means that we are held accountable by the state for attendance, curriculum, and state testing (AzMERIT’s and AIMS). Being a Virtual Academy gives families the opportunity to access our classical model of education from home. We make allowance for individualized flexible schedules, yet hold scholars and families accountable to our rigorous curriculum. In addition to providing curriculum and oversight, our Leman Virtual Academy teaching staff will work with families in both grade-level and an individual virtual settings; our teachers are responsible for planning, assigning work, and assessing scholars’ growth.
Yes. In the spring, scholars in grades 3-8 will take the AzMERIT exams in English and Math. Scholars in grades 4 and 8 will take the AIMS Science exam. These exams will be offered on our brick-and-mortar campuses and in several other locations throughout the state.
NWEA Benchmark Assessments
Scholars will also participate in NWEA Benchmark assessments online three times each year. These assessments are used to monitor growth, and provide valuable feedback to our teachers. These assessments do not count as grades in a gradebook, but are rather used to help teachers plan more effective lessons.
We utilize a Learning Management System (LMS) called Schoology. This virtual classroom provides a secure place for scholars to interact with each other in their grade, and with the teacher. Assignments will be posted, turned in, and graded all within Schoology.
Both parents and scholars will receive an account for Schoology. From the parent login, parents will be able to see assignments, conversations, and grades for their own scholars only. All interactions from other scholars in the class will be marked as anonymous to protect each scholar’s privacy.
If you are ready to enroll, you will first need to set up a Parent Vue Account, and then you will receive further directions.
Leman Virtual Academy has open enrollment year-round. Enrollment for the current school year will be closed from April through May.
Hours depend on grade and Full Time Equivalency percentage (FTE Contract). The hours listed on the FTE Contract are estimated minimums, and most scholars exceed those hours.
Leman Virtual Academy will provide families with all core curriculum texts (both print and digital), access to digital programs, and a grade level teacher who will provide lessons, virtual meetings, assignments and grades. Families will be responsible for providing a computer (desktop, laptop, or chromebook) and internet access, grade level Novels (4th through 8th Grade), and may find it beneficial to purchase some supplemental resources (such as the Usborne Science Encyclopedia).
