Fresno virtual academy holds back-to-school celebration for students

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Students in Fresno are logging on for a unique approach to learning. A back-to-school celebration was held on Monday for students of the California Virtual Academy at Fresno (CAVA). Before reconnecting with classmates in web-based classrooms, local students connected in-person at Oso de Oro Park.

The virtual academy is a full-time online public charter school for students in grades K-8 and serves nearly 300 students.

CAVA teacher Susan Hays said, "We have lots of outings students can participate with. They interact online together. It's really fun at the beginning of the year to get to know one another and put some faces together to make some friends at the start."

School officials say students and parents regularly interact with their California-credentialed teachers via email, online classrooms, online discussions, phone and face-to-face meetings. null
