"Bytes" From Your School Leader

Greetings Phalen Leadership Academies Virtual Families,

We are so excited to welcome you to the PLA Virtual family! We are embarking on a new virtual academy and we are fortunate to have stellar highly qualified teachers, amazing families (that's YOU), rigorous curriculum, a strong foundation with our proven PLA framework and an entire network committed to our scholars. We know and understand that virtual learning may be new for most families, and we will partner with you to ensure optimal success. We are pleased to share several options for on-boarding and information to help you prepare for the first day of school and beyond. I look forward to an amazing school year with exponential academic growth and gains as we prepare our scholars to meet high academic and social standards, and to thrive as leaders at home, in their communities and in the world.
