Letter to CVVA Families - August 21, 2020

August 21, 2020

Good Afternoon, Castro Valley Virtual Academy (CVVA) Students and Parents:

Welcome to CVVA! We are very excited to have you with us and we want to get you on board and engaged in learning as soon as possible. We have fully credentialed and experienced teachers on staff who are eager to work with your students. 

Your student(s) received a CVVA update today. The update referenced changes to a few CVVA course offerings due to low enrollment. Please reassure them that as always a counselor will reach out to them to make any necessary changes to their schedule.

Students have been meeting with Ms. Meadows this week where they have received information about their Edgenuity accounts and online etiquette. They are now loaded into the schedule and can log into their Edgenuity accounts through their Clever Portal using the same email address and password they use for their school Google account.  The Clever Portal tab is at the top right hand of the screen next to the Google extensions tabs (It is a circle with a “c” inside).

This year, CVVA students will attend an Advisory period everyday which is a change from previous years in CVVA. Your first Advisory meeting will be on Monday. Your advisory teacher will email you a link to your meeting (if they have not already). You will receive the times for your check in and the schedule during advisory, and will be able to log into your Edgenuity account starting on Monday.

As part of your student’s learning experience, teachers will be conducting workshops. These will be small group academic support classes to guide your child as they progress through their Edgenuity curriculum. CVVA teachers will also be scheduling office hours in which your students can meet for individual support as needed.

Please note that all requests for course and program changes are currently on hold. We will be reviewing all requests in the next few days. 

Updated information on CVVA can be found on the CVVA website

We look forward to seeing you (virtually) on Monday! 

Best regards,

Valerie Williams
