VLAC Second Semester Pacing Guide
As we wrap up first semester, we are aware some students are done with their courses and want to move on to second semester already. Please use the pacing guide below for second semester courses. Reach out to your mentor teacher if you have any questions.

Upcoming Count Weeks
In virtual programs in the State of Michigan, we are required to complete two count months per year. The second count month begins in February. Count weeks are from Wednesday to Tuesday. Students will complete a "two way interaction" with their teachers each week ASAP when their mentor teacher posts their interaction on Google Classroom. Students who we do not have interactions complete will be contacted by VLAC office staff; if we are unable to contact you, we will notify your district who may then decide to take further action. Districts pay student tuition to VLAC and it is up to them if you do not participate in count and they want to remove you from the program as a result. Please participate during count month as it is very important to us to provide this service for our districts.
