Students in Iowa public virtual schools do school from home, with lessons delivered online through our online learning portal. Students log in to lessons and coursework, complete and turn in assignments, and interact with peers. They also meet with teachers for live, teacher-led group instruction and one-one-one, individualized attention.
Parents or other caregivers play an important role in virtual school. They support the learning day by keeping their student motivated, accountable, and on track to succeed.
Because Iowa students are doing school online, families have more freedom to set a daily schedule that works best for them. As long as students finish lessons and coursework on time, they have more room in the day to pursue their individual skills and interests.
