Top of Page

As we continue to navigate the various tragedies touching our immediate communities and our country, we at CVA and MN Department of Education want to provide a variety of resources for families and educators if needed. We as a community believe in providing safe spaces for students and staff to process tragedy appropriately within our community. If you or your student need support during this time do not hesitate to reach out to a staff member.

  • On March 22, 2021, CVA will be moving to a model that will offer increased Direct Instruction for our K - 4 students and our Special Education students in full pull out classes, along with increased opportunities for direct teacher support for students on campus.
Grades K - 4 will have direct instruction from their teacher in the classroom Monday - Wednesday from 8:30 - 3:30 pm.  Students who choose to be on campus can count on having their teachers in the classroom for the full day to support their learning initiatives. Students who are choosing to continue to do Distance Learning will continue to have Zoom lessons and interaction available from the teacher and paraprofessionals in the space.
Grades 5 - 12 will continue to have lessons delivered via Zoom.  Students who choose to be on campus can expect to see their teachers a minimum of 1 day a week in person. Some teachers may choose to come and deliver their lessons in the study center classroom via direct instruction, which would give students increased access to their teachers for support.  
Special Education Pull-out classes: Students who are in full pull out classes and are coming to campus can expect to see their Special Education teachers in the classroom Monday - Wednesday, providing direct instruction if there is a minimum of 2 of the students enrolled in the class on campus. This will help ensure they are receiving the highest level of support to meet their IEP goals.

Cyber Village Academy will provide updated COVID practices and procedures on a regular basis by updating necessary information throughout the 2020-2021 school year. Each phase of our plan has slightly different expectations and guidelines for students and staff. 
 
Cyber Village Academy (CVA) continues to be in a unique position to be able to leverage our understanding and training in online learning which has been a key component of our school for 22+ years.  CVA will continue to take our past experiences and program for all of our students to move between hybrid and distance learning. 33% of our students already learn 100% online, we will be altering our Fusion (hybrid) program to support the rest of our students to find success in the new learning environment.
 
Things to know:
  • Online interaction is expected daily: Live and recorded lessons will be available to support students.
  • Students will  have a consistent schedule regardless of what phase of education we are in.
  • All services will continue to be supported for students throughout the school year virtually or in person depending on the model.
