About Virtual Academy
The Plano ISD Virtual Academy is a public, tuition-free school for students in grades K through 5. The fully remote option will provide an opportunity for students who thrive in the online environment to learn virtually.
Learning Platform Overview
Plano ISD will be using Canvas and our PISD curriculum to engage students with fun, meaningful courses and curriculum. Taught by Plano ISD’s highly qualified teachers, this standards-aligned curriculum consists of courses in math, English language arts, science, social studies and more.
In this model, students will participate in both synchronous and asynchronous daily instruction. Students will spend live synchronous sessions with their teachers in core content areas throughout the day, with the remainder of their school day engaged in an asynchronous learning environment. Teachers will follow student progress and will design the synchronous lessons as appropriate to small groups of students during the live sessions each day.
