Kelso Expands Learning Options for Families

Kelso School District's overarching goal is to return to “traditional” in-person instruction in a safe and sensible manner.  However, as we analyzed our Thoughtexchange survey results from June 8 and June 26 it became clear that we need to plan for multiple learning opportunities, and that a return to in-person learning (in any form) may be more than some families are currently comfortable with.  

We understand that some families may want or need an online-only learning experience and we are pleased to share with you that our Kelso School Board approved the expansion of our already established Kelso Virtual Academy (KVA) to a kindergarten through grade 12 online learning option available in the fall.

Please email or complete the Parent Inquiry Form to begin the Kelso Virtual Academy registration process in order to enroll your student in the virtual-only learning experience.  Early registration will allow our District team to assign your student to a distance learning teacher and allow us to prepare for how to best provide this robust learning opportunity. Please note – completing the KVA registration process confirms that your student will not attend in-person classes for at least the first Trimester September 2 – November 25 (K-5th and 9th-12th grade students) or Semester September 2 – January 15 (6th - 8th grade students) of the 2020-2021 school year.  For early acceptance, please complete the form by Wednesday, August 5, 2020.
