      VLO

      • Virtual Loudoun Online (VLO) offers courses through Schoology using content aligned to the Standards of Learning to provide new educational opportunities for students. Virtual Loudoun Online courses are full-year courses offered in a condensed term. Students should expect to dedicate 140 hours to complete a one-credit course within the term period. LCPS also uses other online vendors to offer courses.

        VLO is only open to middle school students during our Summer Term 3 for select course options. High School students can register for an additional class to be taken virtually (an eighth credit earned during the academic year) and the coursework they are taking in their home school program. Students work at their own pace, utilizing the recommended assignment submission schedule, with the opportunity to connect with their teacher by appointment for support and assistance as needed. Please review the VLO FAQs webpage for additional details, including how many virtual classes LCPS students can take.

        • NOTE:  Please know that access to LCPS platforms is blocked for students traveling outside the United States.  However, it is possible for students traveling outside the United States to maintain access to LCPS resources provided families specify the travel start and end dates for the student in ParentVUE.  Travel start and end dates must be entered for each child who will be traveling outside the country.  It can take up to 24 hours for updates to take effect. Please consider this when scheduling travel plans with your student.  (Please review the information under ParentVUE Data & Security for specific steps.)
