Virtual Learning Academy

Eligibility

The St. Landry Parish Virtual Learning Academy at SLATS is open to all students in grades 6-12 who are enrolled in St. Landry Parish School System. Although the program is open to all students, it may be most beneficial to students who possess the following:

  • Self-motivation with a desire to learn independently
  • Good time management skills
  • Prefer asynchronous learning versus the traditional classroom
  • Works to complete assignments on or ahead of time
  • Possess adequate technical skills (comfortable working on a computer)
  • Desire to seek an advanced course program not available in their assigned school
  • has a need for flexibility
  • Desire to graduate early
  • Has access to the Internet at home
 
Virtual Learning is a voluntary program for students, however, once a student has been accepted and registers, he/she will remain in the program for the entire school year. A student will not be granted approval to transfer back to his/her base school after school begins. 
 

 

Promotion Requirements for ALL Programs  

 

Students must complete 100% of the work designated for a nine-week period.  Students will receive a letter grade of A, B, C, D, or F each nine weeks on JCAMPUS report cards. A student must earn at least a final average of 67% to receive credit for the course.  If a student does not complete the virtual course by the end of the second (2nd) grade reporting period (1/2 credit course) or by the end of the fourth (4th) grade reporting period (full credit course), the student will receive an F for the final grade and no credit will be earned for the course.  All students must take all standardized tests for the appropriate grade level.
