Meet Our Partners
Together with our partners, we can do so much to ensure quality online learning experiences for all students and educators.
Digital Learning Collaborative

Expanding online learning opportunities in rural districts is one of the VLLA’s advocacy priorities. These opportunities can assist in bridging the gap of equitable educational challenges faced by rural districts and their community. The NREA, a voice for rural schools and communities, is a valued partner of the VLLA.
