OCON Virtual Learning Community

The Oconomowoc Area School District (OASD) is excited to introduce the Oconomowoc Virtual Learning Community (OVLC) as one of the educational options for students in the 2020-21 school year.  Our District continues to listen to the feedback from families, and we understand the need families have to support their children in entirely virtual settings as a result of the current pandemic.  We believe the OVLC will meet this need for families, both in response to COVID-19 and long-term, as families determine the most flexible educational environment for their children.

Request to Move Between OVLC & In-Person School

The OASD launched the Ocon Virtual Learning Community (OVLC) at the start of the 2020-21 school year to provide families an alternative option to in-person learning in our school buildings amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

When we launched this new program, we planned several transition times throughout the year when students could move from in-person learning into the OVLC or vice versa. These transition times align with the semester for high school students and the trimester for intermediate and elementary students. To maintain appropriate and consistent staffing for both the OVLC and in-person learning, we are not able to move students at any other time during the school year.

Grades 4K-8:  Deadlines for 2nd Trimester:

  • Deadline to complete this form requesting a transfer into or from the OVLC = November 13, 2020
  • First day of 2nd Trimester = November 30, 2020

Grades 9-12:  Deadlines for 2nd Semester:

  • Deadline to complete this form requesting a transfer into or from OVLC = January 5, 2021
  • First day of 2nd Semester = January 19, 2021

Grades 4K-8:  Deadlines for 3rd Trimester:

  • Deadline to complete this form requesting a transfer into or from the OVLC = February 12, 2021
  • First day of 3rd Trimester = March 1, 2021

Please complete this online form to request a transition from OVLC to in-person school or in-person school to OVLC for each student.

About the OVLC

About the OVLC

The OVLC is structured as part of the OASD, not an OASD Charter School.  Students who enroll in the OVLC will continue to be part of the OASD and can participate in OASD co-curricular activities or athletics.  Students will also have the opportunity to transition between settings at designated points in the school year if they find the educational environment is no longer conducive to their academic or social development.

This Program Planning Guide is designed to support families as they decide if the OVLC is the right fit for their children. This document will continue to change as the OVLC team finalizes program details leading up to the start of the 2020-21 school year.
