When students choose to attend school virtually, the master schedule for teachers and traditional students shift drastically. As parents and students continue weighing their learning options and electing to switch to virtual learning, many classes have been combined and educators have been asked to teach both virtual and in-person classes.
To create a more manageable learning environment, TCSS has established a date where students wishing to attend school via Troup County Virtual Academy (TCVA) will have to make a choice by Friday, September 25, 2020. This deadline will provide more stability to students’ schedules and educators’ course loads. In addition, if parents choose to TCVA, students will remain in virtual learning for the remainder of 2020.
For parents and students wishing to move from in-person learning to virtual learning, the process is:
- Students and parents must meet with school personnel to discuss virtual learning expectations and schedule changes.
- Students will be virtual learners until January 5, 2021.
- Parents must complete the Troup County Virtual Academy paperwork to request the online learning model.
- Students can begin virtual learning after discussing – and agreeing to – the expectations of virtual learners.
