Vancouver Learning Network - Elementary
elementary program registers full time K–7 students and operates out of the VLN
at 530 East 41st Avenue. Students enroll in the VLN’s elementary program
for a variety of purposes such as: to maintain their B.C. schooling while
traveling abroad, to make allowances for students with health needs that
make regular attendance at school a challenge, or to allow the
flexibility for participation in high-level sports or arts programs.
enrolling at VLN, the elementary student and parent/guardian must meet with a
qualified B.C. teacher to design a Student Learning Plan. Teachers are
responsible for leading the educational program with support from the
parents/guardians. Formal reports are written twice per school year, just
as in brick-and-mortar schools, although feedback is given regularly.
learning assignments are typically submitted by mail. Students maintain contact
with their teacher with through personal email, telephone, via the internet, or
by visiting the VLN office.
