Catoosa Virtaul Academy will serve grades K-12 by providing students the ability to receive their education through a virtual learning format, while also receiving assistance from certified, highly qualified Catoosa Public Schools teachers. This full-time option allows students to complete 100% of their coursework online. Since virtual learning instruction makes one-on-one learning possible, the student may accelerate the pace of classes to meet their needs. All courses keep students on track to graduate. Students with disabilities on a Section 504 Accommodation Plan or on an Individualized Education Program (IEP) can participate in virtual learning. Parents will need to meet (in-person or virtually) with their school’s team to determine which virtual program is the best placement for their student. Contact Paula Haueter, special education director, for more information firstname.lastname@example.org
Edgenuity (grades 6-12) and Pathblazer (grades K-5) will provide the direct instruction and Catoosa Public Schools teachers will provide timelines, oversight, support, tutoring, etc. Canvas, an online platform, will be used for communication, guidance, and instruction in academic subjects not provided through Edgenuity and/or Pathblazer. In addition, Exact Path and other intervention and enrichment programs will be used based on guidance from the CPS certified teacher.
Students will utilize school-issued devices (Macbook 3-12 and iPads K-2) to complete assignments. Online learners are required to meet weekly with their teachers to discuss progress, whether through a phone call, email, or virtual setting.
