Welcome to VVSP!

Amazing Self-Paced Families:

We are so excited to have you joining us this year in Vail Virtual Self-Paced. Our teachers and staff are thrilled to have this opportunity to help support our students, families, and community. As part of Vail Virtual Self-Paced, we will send out weekly newsletters with information about what is happening as well as any updates.

This year we are excited to be building our own curriculum that aligns with the Vail School District Calendar and will allow our students to have some of the same opportunities that our in-person students are having. We know that you are choosing this option as it is what will work best for your family at this time, but please know that we are here to support you should you need it. We are an email or phone call away.

Please take a few moments to take a look at our Newsletter and read the information that may be helpful for your family.

Have a wonderful week!

AOI Minutes

July 23, 2021

As your child(ren) is/are participating in the Vail Virtual Self-Paced program this year you will be required to complete a parent attestation each day to report how many minutes they worked that day.

At the Vail Innovation Center we are required by the state to collect attendance by submitting the number of minutes each student participates in instructional time daily. The Vail Innovation Center is part of AOI (Arizona Online Instruction) educational entity which has different ways of reporting instructional time. If students are inactive (absent) for 10 or more days consecutively the state guidelines require us to drop students from our program. If we do not have a record of your child's minutes to submit to the state we are required to to withdraw them for non-attendance. This is the same policy as the brick and mortar schools.

Moving forward you will need to submit minutes on the daily form for a minimum of 5 days a week. We have attached the minimum required daily minutes to report your student as a full time student. Some students will do more than the minimum and at times will take longer to complete reading assignments and homework. Please be sure to include all of the time your child works for each day. .

Please use this link to submit the minutes for your child daily. The link to do this will be shared in this newsletter each week, but the link itself is not changing. You can bookmark the link for easy access. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Here is the data that will be needed for the form:

Student First Name:

Student Last Name:

State ID:

Teacher Name:

Date of Instruction:

Number of Minutes:

I look forward to continuing to work with all of you to support your child's educational needs,
