Blue Valley Virtual Option 2021-22

Elementary and Middle School All-Virtual Option for 2021-22

  • Blue Valley’s Partnership with Greenbush Virtual Academy

     

    As a response to parent feedback regarding virtual education opportunities, Blue Valley has entered into a partnership with Greenbush Education Service Center’s Virtual Academy for the 2021-22 school year. Blue Valley students in grades K-8 had an opportunity to enroll in the Greenbush Virtual Academy (GVA) for the 2021-22 school year. GVA is fully accredited by the Kansas State Department of Education and has administered a virtual program for several years. This year GVA is partnering with more than 80 districts across the state to offer an all-virtual option to Kansas students. 

     

    GVA is a full-time virtual alternative to in-person attendance where students remain enrolled as Blue Valley students. GVA enrollment closed at 4 p.m. on Monday, May 31. No applications are being accepted after this date due to the timeline Blue Valley needs to share student enrollment numbers with GVA to ensure they can staff accordingly based on state-wide enrollment numbers.
