• Interested in Enrolling in the TVA?

    We recognize that most students find academic and social success best through in-person learning.  We have become increasingly aware however of a growing number of students that thrive through alternative learning environments and specifically through online learning.  The Trojan Virtual Academy serves as a school choice option for families to maintain connection with Duneland Schools while selecting a learning option that they feel works best for their student(s).

     

    Families interested in enrolling in the TVA should be aware of the following prior to enrollment:

    • Participants commit to one semester of enrollment.
    • TVA students will be required to complete in-person testing at various times throughout the school year for local and state mandated testing. (NWEA, mClass, ILEARN, PSAT, etc.) [COVID-19 Response Plan Guidelines will be followed during onsite days.]
    • Strict adherence to a virtual school handbook will be required. Failure to follow attendance guidelines and remain current in coursework will result in removal from the virtual program.

     

    Additionally, following the start of any semester families should be aware of the following:

    • Any grades earned in the current semester at the home school will not transfer. 
    • Students will start their semester over in the online environment and still be required to complete the entire 18 weeks of assignments by the end of Duneland’s semester [Currently: Dec. 17, 2021].
    • The TVA offers a variety of courses, but not all courses offered at CMS or CHS transfer to scheduling options in the TVA so adjustments will be made.
    • Students with special education needs need to schedule a case conference to review accommodations and options within the TVA prior to transferring to the TVA.
    • The enrollment and transfer process is not immediate and several days may transpire before a student is able to start their online courses.
