Helpful Tips for the First Week of School

HOW TO VIEW YOUR SCHEDULE:

Once you log into the Family Portal, select our school name towards the top where their other school name may be listed (toggle option), and then select schedule on the left side. Students that take courses at multiple schools will need to bring up their schedules individually at each school; they are not listed together on one schedule.

Schoology and Campus are often not in sync the first week of school. Your schedule in the Family Portal is the schedule and courses you have with JVA. Please give Schoology a few days to make corrections if there are errors in your schedule. 

 

PASSWORD/TECHNOLOGY HELP:

If you do not remember your password, you can reset it using the following instructions: First, click on this link to reset your password: Password Reset

If that does not work, click on this link to fill out a Help Desk ticket and our technician will be able to assist you within 2 hours during normal school hours: Help Desk Ticket

You may also want to visit our JVA Help Desk Site for troubleshooting guides and to request help from our Instructional Technology Coordinator. The JVA Help Desk is located at: JVA Help Desk Troubleshoot Site

 

ATTENDANCE POLICY:

Campus face to face days:  Tuesday TAG (required), Wednesday Middle School (required), Thursday High School English, Social Studies, Math and Science.

Online attendance: Teachers take attendance once a week on Thursday and enter present or absent for the previous five school days. We gauge attendance based on grades and actually turning in work in classes.  Student attendance is determined as follows: 

  • If the student has a C in the class on Thursday, he or she will be marked present for the past five school days. 
  • If the student has less than a C in the class on Thursday, but has turned in at least two quality assignments in the past five days, then he or she will be marked present for the past five school days.
  • If the student has less than a C AND has not submitted at least two quality assignments in the last five days, then he or she will be marked absent for the past five school days.

SCHOOL WEBSITE AND CALENDAR: Make sure you bookmark our school website so you have easy access to our calendar, events and resources throughout the year.  This is a very helpful tool for families. JVA School Website
