What can you do this summer to prepare for your online schooling experience with COVA?

Here are some great ways to get acquainted with the online model and some resources to help you connect this summer for those new and prospective Colorado Virtual Academy (COVA) families.

The COVA K12 Start website has some helpful videos from how to use the online school to Learning Coach/Mentor training sessions from K12.  This site is a guide for the 2012 School Year.

COVA Community Connection is a website that’s all about community and keeping families informed of ongoing field trips and community events throughout the school year.

The Colorado Virtual Academy Events and Activities calendar is a link you’ll want to keep in your favorites so it’s easy to access.  Click on the event you’re interested in to learn more.

The K12 Customer Support site will be your one stop for all questions and concerns about tech stuff, materials, your Online School (OLS), and more.

And the Colorado Coalition of Cyberschool Families (CCCF)  is another valuable resource for any cyber school family.  We are a group of dedicated parents who have come together to be powerful and vocal advocates for all cyberschools and online learning in Colorado.  CCCF hosts events throughout the year like our upcoming Park Day and our annual Day at the Capitol.  Please join the coalition to receive important legislative updates and information about upcoming events.

CCCF works collaboratively with the Colorado Cyberschools Association (CCA) whose mission is “to cooperatively assist cyberschools as they provide a quality education to all Colorado students whose needs are served through online education.”  Check out their website too!

As a veteran COVA parent, learning coach and mentor to 3 children, I welcome any questions or comments below or feel free to contact me through Kontactr at the top right, just click on the little white envelope.

Welcome to all of the newly enrolled Colorado Virtual Academy families!  May your educational journey be filled with the love of learning and continuous successes!
