Participating students will still be students at their current schools, but they’ll do all of their studies virtually.

The TPS interim chief learning officer says the online learning will be a combination of structure and flexibility, as teachers are working to build a schedule for students close to what they’re used to in the classroom.

Right now, the four main subjects (English, social studies, math and science) as well as electives needed for graduation are guaranteed to be offered online, as for specialized courses, they’re still working to build those in an online format.

There are exceptions allowed, but for the most part how a student chooses to learn in the beginning of the year can not be changed back and forth until the midway mark.
