LVEF-Alameda FAQ's

LVEF Summer School FAQ"S page for classes at Alameda High School

Welcome to the Las Virgenes Educational Foundation (LVEF) Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page.  LVEF is a WASC accredited Summer School.  We are very pleased to be partnering with the Alameda Education Foundation  to bring our summer school program to Alameda Unified School District students, and other students in the surrounding area. 

Our goal is to assist students with their academic goals and needs through accelerated classes.  LVEF classes meet or exceed California Standards, follow the AUSD curriculum, and are taught only by credentialed teachers. 

AUSD will accept all LVEF courses.  Summer school is fast-paced and rigorous.  A successful student experience is the result of working hard each and every day.  The LVEF principal, teachers, and staff are dedicated to students receiving a quality educational experience.

We hope the following topics assist you to better understand our summer school program and answer your questions.

I HAVE AN IEP R A 504 PLAN.  CAN I ENROLL IN SUMMER SCHOOL?
If you have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or a 504 plan set up by a California school district, you can apply to Summer School.  Howerver, as a small private school, LVEF does not have the resources to accommodate the provisions of IEP's/504's.  When a student/parent registers for summer school it is with the understanding the provisions in the IEP or 504 Plan will not be followed and the student will be expected to participate and complete the course and its requirement in the same manner as all other students in the class.
