Since everything is conducted online, your teacher and fellow classmates can be anywhere in the country or around the world.
If you are on a special education plan and need specific accommodations, either you or your parent/guardian must notify your VHS instructor(s) during the first week of class so the proper arrangements can be made.

Students can ask teachers questions one-on-one via a private discussion thread that is built into each course, and teachers provide regular feedback through assignments and discussion posts. Summer school teachers also hold weekly one-hour office hours through a virtual classroom embedded in the platform, D2L Brightspace. During office hours students can meet with their teacher to ask questions and work through questions and problems. Students are not required to attend but are strongly encouraged to if they need extra help.
Students log in to their course to access the virtual classroom, and they can share video and work on an interactive whiteboard in real-time. Course content is not presented during office hours, as the time is intended for students and teachers to meet and discuss challenges and work through problems.
