About the Virtual Academy
The mission of Kershaw County School District Virtual Academy (KCSD VA) is to create a positive and nurturing virtual learning environment that engages and inspires students to reach their greatest potential.
Students who are accepted to KCSD VA can expect to receive direct instruction provided virtually by Kershaw County School District certified teachers dedicated to online teaching and learning. Students will participate and engage in virtual meetings, collaborative discussions, and tasks that include digital and interactive resources. Instruction will be delivered using the district’s Canvas Learning Management System with links to district-supported digital learning tools. Teachers will provide direct instruction that includes synchronous live sessions through BigBlueButton (which is part of the Canvas LMS platform) based on a daily schedule. Attendance will be taken daily. Students must meet state attendance guidelines and attend daily virtual live sessions. Students that fail to attend daily virtual classes or submit work on time may be considered truant and will receive attendance intervention plans just as students attending face-to-face classes. Student progress and attendance will be monitored routinely. Students in danger of not meeting attendance requirements and/or not making adequate progress in the grade/course may be exited from KCSD VA. Assignments will be expected to be submitted daily and weekly. Virtual small group and one-on-one instruction will be available and assigned as needed with the student.
