Russellville Cyclone Virtual Academy is a school within RSD that is virtual for students whose needs may be met better in a different environment than the traditional classroom. We use the Buzz Learning Management System. The Buzz LMS is where course content is housed and accessed by both teachers and students. Students have the flexibility to do school work from home.

We will have full-time teachers solely dedicated to supporting virtual students. Our teachers will communicate with students in a variety of ways to make sure they feel supported, including emails, virtual meetings, phone calls, and offer on-site support. 

Students will be provided with a device to complete their work.
