Cartersville Virtual Academy(CVA)
In response to the needs of our community, Cartersville City Schools has added a new full-time online option for our K-12 students during the 2020-21 school year. Unlike our previous digital learning implemented under emergency conditions during last spring's 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. Given the current COVID-19 situation we know that the need for an alternative to our traditional school option has increased. Deciding on whether to return to a school building this fall or enroll in CVA is a deeply personal decision for each CCS student and family and our staff will work with families to help them make the best decision for their student(s). We recognize it is difficult to decide on committing to a fully online program without knowing what traditional school will look like this fall. Like you, we are trying to plan and make decisions without knowing what the future holds. Though we do not know for sure how school will be conducted throughout the 2020-21 year, students in our traditional program will likely experience both in-person and digital due to changing conditions related to COVID.
If you are electing to enroll your student(s) in the CVA during the 2020-21 school year, complete the registration for each student before the JULY 24, 2020 5:00 P.M. DEADLINE. After completing the application, your student's information will be reviewed by the CVA team. After review, you will be contacted via email/phone by JULY 28, 2020 to complete the registration process.
