Tulsa Public Schools to launch virtual academy

Posted at 9:22 PM, Jul 06, 2020

TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa Public School's virtual academy is going to feature a mixture of structure and flexibility for students in pre-K through 12th grade whose parents want them to stay home during the pandemic.

TPS officials said students in the Tulsa Virtual Academy will receive a lesson and goal plan each day that will follow a typical school day.

The district also said teachers for this option will be 100% virtually assigned. Unless there are students in a specialized course, then a teacher for that course might have to help out for both in-person and online classes.

"We really want to make sure that if students have been in a certain track, IB, magnet, specialized foreign language courses, we want to do our very best to offer those as well," said Dr. Ebony Johnson, interim chief learning officer with Tulsa Public Schools.

TPS said if you're interested in online learning for your child, apply for it now.

If you change your mind about your child's enrollment, whether it's online or in-person, you can change how they're enrolled at the semester break.

Once you apply for the virtual academy, employees at the district will reach out to you to get some more information.
