What does my student need in addition to their ipad or MacBook?
The virtual supply list is unique from the face to face home school and recommended but not required. Teachers will try to utilize materials students have at home when possible. Your student’s supply list can be found on our Liberty Virtual School website.
Where and when does my child pick up their ipad or MacBook?
Pickup of district issued devices will be at your student’s home school (the school your student would attend if they were attending face to face). If you are unable to pick up your child’s device at the home school's designated pick up day and time, please call (816) 736-5320 for more information.
What does the first day of school look like?
Parents may need to help students to set-up their virtual learning system using our how-to videos available on our Canvas site. This is especially important for our newest elementary learners. Our teachers will be engaging students in zoom on the first day of school to explain many of the procedures necessary to have school virtually.
If you are unable to access Canvas on the first day of classes, please send your teacher an email and call the Technology HelpDesk at (816) 736-7078 for assistance.
When will we find out my student’s teacher and my student’s schedule?
Schedules are being determined at this time. We are working with home schools to get placements and schedules finalized.
What are the expectations for students and parents choosing Liberty Virtual School?
Virtual learning will look different from the spring; there is an expectation for students to participate in daily zooms and parents/caregivers will be their learning managers. Grade level specific daily schedules can be found on our Liberty Virtual School website.
