• MCVA Policies and Procedures for 2021-2022

    With COVID numbers dropping and vaccinations on the rise, we are optimistic that there will be less restrictions on our on-campus learning labs for the 2021-2022 school year. The MCVA policy and procedure for in-person learning requirements next year is outlined below.

    Tiered System of Support
    Individual student performance will be monitored regularly, and support will be provided using a tiered system based on student needs:

    • Level 1: Current students in good standing will attend labs only as needed.

    • Level 2: Students who are out of good standing for the first time will be required to attend in-person labs twice a month. New students will enter MCVA on Level 2 for the first month of school to develop relationships with the staff and establish good study habits.

    • Level 3: Additional violations will result in a probationary period where students are required to attend in-person labs two hours per week. Additional time requirements will be added if progress is not satisfactory.

    Good Standing
    Good standing is determined based on the following criteria:

      1. Attendance: Students are expected to log in daily. Two or more unexcused absences will result in Level 2 support. Three or more unexcused absences will result in Level 3 support.

      2. Course Progress: Students must make adequate weekly progress in all courses. Students who are off-pace in any course more than one week a month will be moved to the next level of support.

      3. Course Grades: Students should maintain a passing grade in all courses. Students with a current average of 60-64 in any course will be placed on Level 2 support. Students with a failing grade in any course will be placed on Level 3 support.

      4. Participation in Additional Instruction as Needed: Progress monitoring and benchmark assessments will be used to identify gaps in learning that may require additional face-to-face instruction via Google Meets. One or more unexcused absences from these Meets per month will result in the student moving to the next level of support.

      5. Participation in State and District Testing:  Failure to participate in state and district assessments will result in Level 2 support.  See below for additional information on the assessments. 

    State and District Assessments 
    Students will continue to take state assessments and district benchmark assessments on campus.

    MCVA is subject to all state testing and accountability requirements and will be subject to the same rules and regulations regarding the administration of such tests applicable to traditional public school. We will administer, at a minimum, the following exams on campus:
