virtual academy

We’ve switched Modesty over to the California Virtual Academy (CAVA) (Basically because we’re not really morning people) which is a K12 (http://k12.com/) school, and they’ve sent us all this stuff; books, equipment, rulers, flashcards and so on.

Just like most schools they get an amount of funding per student, and unlike other school they don’t have all the extra overheads of buildings and so on. So I assume the amount they get buys all this equipment per student, with an amount left over for administration and a little profit.

The lessons are guided online, so we look at what we’re supposed to be doing, print out any assignments, get the equipment together and let Modesty at it. She’s doing well so far.
