Mentor Support

IVLA believes the key to student success is partnering with families!  IVLA mentors work with students and families to provide extra assistance and guidance during the student’s school year and help ensure student success.

We recognize communication is an important part of this partnership. Mentors update parents about their student’s progress on a weekly basis as well as provide an opportunity to speak by phone or online conference once a month. The mentor helps the family with course scheduling and planning. The objective is that parents will have a personal connection to someone within the online school structure; someone to whom they can go to with questions or concerns of any nature.  Ensuring parents are fully aware of student progress and resources available to them builds a strong support structure for student success.

Elementary and middle school mentors host homeroom sessions on a regular basis for their students in a secure, closed online classroom. In homeroom, students participate with other students either by camera or chat in learning enrichment and get-to-know you activities. The result is a sense of community that helps to motivate students in their learning.  In middle school and high school, students can choose clubs in which to participate.  Like homeroom, mentors host these clubs in their online classrooms. Clubs provide an engaging supplement to their regular online learning, broadening their learning experience.

Teacher Support

Online learning is most effective when delivered by teachers experienced in their subject matter.  At IVLA our teachers are certified in the subject or grade levels they teach and are dedicated to your student’s success.

Our teachers grade student work within 24 hours of submission providing feedback which is an essential component of learning. IVLA teachers check their students’ progress and messages daily Monday through Friday and will always respond to questions or concerns within 24 hours.  Having a teacher available to answer questions wards off frustration and gives students the confidence to move forward in their independent learning.

Online curriculum in which the courseware grades student work is effective and efficient, providing immediate feedback and personalized learning. However, as sophisticated as online learning systems are, input from an experienced “human” teacher is invaluable. When students submit work for teachers to grade, they reap the benefit of trained and certified educators. Teachers can spot areas where students struggle and can assist accordingly. Knowing the courseware, teachers can suggest lessons, activities, or videos to best help the student. Teacher-graded work keeps the learning experience authentic by providing an extra layer of accountability and educational expertise.
