About the Program
The Oglala Lakota Virtual High School (OLCVHS) offers Oglala Lakota students the opportunity to complete their high school diploma requirements online. Students are taught by qualified professionals, and students can complete their coursework on their own time.
Because the South Dakota Department of Education approves all courses, students and parents can be assured that the courses meet State academic standards.
The School District:
- Decides if it will allow students to take online courses
- Determines which students are eligible
- Evaluates available online course offerings
The Oglala Lakota County School District will pay for the student to take their online courses. As such, the principal must approve any request for a student to take a course online.
How does it work?
Virtual High School students usually attend class by reporting to a designated school or community computer labs or classrooms. They log on to their virtual course, communicate with their teacher, and complete their coursework.
An on-site coordinator monitors students' progress towards course completion and helps them with any questions or technical problems they have.
