Cartersville Virtual Academy(CVA)
In response to the needs of our community, Cartersville City Schools will continue to offer a full-time online option for our K-12 students during the 2021-22 school year. Unlike our previous digital learning implemented under emergency conditions during the 2020 spring school shutdown, students in the Cartersville Virtual Academy will have a normal daily instructional schedule, earn grades, and receive timely teacher feedback in response to class or homework. Teachers experienced in online platforms and virtual instruction will help and support student engagement using a variety of live and pre-recorded standards-based age-appropriate content. Students in grades 6-12 will also have access to subject matter experts/tutors 7 days a week. We have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions and other resource links below for your convenience and review.
The Cartersville Virtual Academy is not a separate entity or school, but rather an extension of each school site. If you are a second-grade student in the virtual academy you are still a member of the primary school and more importantly, you are still a CANE!
Cartersville City Schools is committed to all students having access to quality education. Whether attending our traditional school or our virtual academy we are dedicated to keeping all our students and families safe. Unlike the 2020-21 school year entry into CVA for the 2021-22 school year will be approved through an application process. The online learning environment can provide a valuable experience for some students; however, it is not suitable for every child's learning needs and styles. To best support students, our team will review applications from interested students/families and assess the likelihood that the applicant will be successful in an online learning environment. Student applications will be reviewed in the order they were submitted, and families will be notified of their application status following the review of all submissions.
Additionally, each school will have a fixed maximum number of students enrolled in CVA.
- Cartersville Primary School- 30 students
- Cartersville Elementary School- 30 students
- Cartersville Middle School- 75 students
- Cartersville High School- 100 students
We realize that student enrollment in the virtual academy was based on pandemic and health-related reasons for most CVA students last year. We also know that it is impossible to predict what impact the pandemic will have on your choice to enroll as a virtual student this year. However, to maintain our primary goal of supporting students and creating successful learning environments, entry into CVA is based solely on the student's capacity to progress in an online learning model. We will be reviewing students' past attendance records, academic performance, and success in previous online coursework to determine their readiness for this style of learning.
