The VHS Collaborative partners with Connections Learning, a leading provider of digital learning solutions, to bring you an expanded catalog of course offerings. We’re able to provide our members with additional core and foreign language courses to complement our numerous co-synchronous electives, honors and AP® classes.
Courses provided by Connections Learning combine standards-aligned curriculum, an expert teacher, and delivery through the Connexus® education management system.
Connections does use a teacher model, however the courses are essentially self-paced. Students advance through modules and progress as they complete assignments. While there is no group work or specific collaboration, students can participate in discussions with classmates when they choose to do so.
VHS site coordinators are given access to Connexus® to monitor the progress of their students enrolled in Connections courses through the VHS partnership.
Enrollment and Grades
Students can enroll in a wide range of core classes such as English, French, Spanish, Chemistry, Physics, World History and more. Though offered in partnership with VHS, Connections courses are not part of The VHS Collaborative and therefore all information pertaining to students and grades should be accessed through the Connexus® system. Registration for Connections classes follows the standard VHS enrollment calendar.
