Q. What do I do if my computer has not arrived and I do not have a working computer at home?
A. Utah State Attendance Law states children in Utah must attend school daily. At UTVA, this means logging into the Online School every day to show you are walking through the front doors of the school building. Attending class connects and completing assignments show you are actively engaged in school. The Online School is accessible on any computer. If you do not have a personal computer at home and are waiting for your computer to arrive, you are still responsible to attend school. Libraries, relatives, or family friends are all very good computer resources until your school computer arrives. Please check your computer eligibility from the Learning Coach account>My Info> student’s name> Hardware tab.
