 Important Update: 

2nd  Semester Commitment Form for current VLO families
is now closed for new submissions. 
All those who did not complete the form by the published deadline
will remain in VLO through the second semester.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lakota responded with the creation of the Virtual Learning Option for district families. In the Virtual Learning Option, or VLO, students learn 100% online with Lakota teacher support.  


“We know that some of our families have concerns about having their child return to school in the fall,” said Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction Keith Koehne. “The Lakota Virtual Learning Option will give our families the opportunity to continue their education with Lakota curriculum from home.” Students enrolled in the virtual program will also have a dedicated Lakota teacher to check in with and ask questions.


On this page, there are resources linked below for VLO families, information guides to answer many general questions, support for technology, and more.
