July 30, 2021 – Registration for Duval Virtual Instruction Academy (DVIA) is open through Monday, Aug. 9.
The “DVIA Enrollment” form is located in the Parent Focus Account under “Forms.”
Two DVIA options are available:
- DVIA Full-Time – This is the standard “asynchronous” learning option where students work at their own pace. This is available for K-12 students.
- DVIA HomeRoom – This is a new “synchronous” learning option similar to Duval HomeRoom where students have instruction through Teams following a daily schedule. This option is available for K-5 students only.
Remember that enrolling in DVIA means you are changing schools.
If a family chooses a DVIA option, students will no longer be assigned to their home school. They will be assigned to DVIA.
This means that students in choice or magnet programs would need to reapply and be accepted to return to their respective program in a future year. Also, DVIA students will be required to go to a specific site for any testing that is not authorized for administering in an at-home, non-secure format.
How and when will I be notified that my child is enrolled?
Due to high demand, DVIA is experiencing delays in their enrollment processes.
The parent/guardian will receive an email confirming they have completed the Interest Form in Focus approximately 3-5 days following submission.
Please expect between 5–10 business days after your application to receive another email with detailed information regarding orientation, schedules, laptop pick-up if needed (personal laptops and other mobile devices will be able to access all needed curriculum and teachers), and more.
What if I have not received confirmation/orientation email by the start of schools?
Please note that there will be no attendance penalty or academic issue of falling behind if students do not have courses to start Day 1.
DVIA staff will work with families to make sure students are prepared for a successful start to the school year.
How can I contact DVIA?
At this time, the best way to contact DVIA staff is vial email: [email protected]. A team member will follow up within two-three days.
