The evolution of the job market is causing educators to rethink what is being taught—what skills students need to be successful in their future career and life. These changes have significant implications for educators as they adapt their career and technical education (CTE) programs to this new paradigm of teaching and learning to ensure programs are fully engaging and preparing students for the careers and workplace of the future.
Creating Vigo Virtual Success Academy to Expand Learning Opportunity
One school system that is embracing this change, leading the way, and adapting to new future opportunities is Vigo County School Corporation (VCSC) in Indiana. With considerable preparation and planning, in 2019 VCSC launched its new virtual school, Vigo Virtual Success Academy (VVSA), with the goal of providing new opportunities to help all students succeed. VVSA also made the decision to partner with Edmentum and leverage EdOptions instructional services, online courses, and experienced virtual teachers to support the launch of VVSA.
