In our schools, about 2,000 students across the state from kindergarten to 11th grade are studying online instead of the classroom through Tennessee Virtual Academy.
“It’s such an accepting environment because there’s students from all over Tennessee so from the most rural parts to the middle of the cities and you’re bound to find someone you can connect with at our school,” program supervisor Lindsay Hays said.
Students have a range of reasons for taking classes online.
Leaders say students still have to participate in live virtual classes and they follow state guidelines and testing rules.
