Stayton Virtual Academy

Online options for 2021-22

Big picture

Dear NSSD community,

This is a reminder that the NSSD is offering a fully online K-12 program through Options Academy, called Stayton Virtual Academy for the 2021-22 school year.

To learn more about out online vendors, you can also visit here:

SchoolsPLP ~ available for grades K-12
Fuel Education ~ available for grades K-5
Brigham Young University (BYU) ~ available for grades 7-12

Chromebooks will be provided to all students who enroll in Stayton Virtual Academy.

For grades K-5, NSSD staff will be the "teacher of record" who will directly oversee student progress and be available daily to answer questions and provide support. The NSSD teacher will also make virtual, in-person meetings available several times per week.

For grades 6-8, BYU/SchoolsPLP teachers will be the “teacher of record” and monitor students.

K-8 students who choose to enroll online may opt to go back to in-person instruction at any time during the school year (following a short enrollment change process).

For grades 9-12, NSSD teachers will enroll students in the online portal, but will grade assessments and be available to answer questions as well as provide content support. They will not, however, directly deliver content in each subject as this is provided in the BYU/SchoolsPLP modules online. Staff will help students to create a schedule that includes electives that they choose (this may include some classes from both programs depending on electives).

Because it is difficult to move 9-12 students from online to in-person in the middle of a term based on credits and curriculum, high school students who choose to enroll online will generally only be allowed to change to in-person at SHS at the semester.

Students wishing to enroll in Stayton Virtual Academy K-12 can begin the registration process online at NSSD REGISTAR. Once this step is complete, families will be contacted to finalize schedules (as needed based on grade level), get materials/technology, and meet teachers.

If you have questions about registration and REGISTAR, you can contact Renee Martinez at 503-769-1618.

If you have questions about the online program overall, you can also reach Mr. Kirby at, or call 503-769-2336 ext 2336.
