Some things to know about GVA:

  • The ability to use Google and Google applications is a significant portion of GVA.
  • Students/parents must be able to download, print out, and return items as attachments on Google docs and email.
  • GVA is an online option, some basic knowledge of using a computer is helpful/required.
  • Communication is key and since it is an online program, this does mean checking email regularly (daily).
  • Parents will need to be involved for the program to work.  This does not mean designing curriculum, but there are parent responsibilities in order to provide success for the student.
  • The ability to navigate apps on a cell phone or computer is a part of the GVA program for both parents and students.
  • It is helpful to have a working printer to print out assignments that student may have to complete manually.
