In a recent statement issued through Twitter, Clayton County Public Schools announced that they would be re-opening applications for their virtual learning program in the upcoming 2021-2022 school year.
“The School-Based Virtual Learning Program is designed to provide parents with the flexibility of a full-time at-home learning option for their child(ren) and is tuition-free for students in grades K-12,” wrote Clayton County Public Schools on Twitter. “Students who are enrolled in the School-Based Virtual Learning Program must continue with this instructional delivery model for at least one full semester (August 2021 to December 2021 or January 2022 to May 2022).”
Clayton County Public Schools’ recent statement is sure to be helpful for parents who would opt to continue their child’s virtual learning at home. While the pandemic is slowing down and things are starting to ease back to normal, many parents who work from home have ultimately decided that having their children at home is best for their family.
Thanks to Clayton County Public Schools, many parents now have that option available for their children. While most parents will be jumping for joy at the opportunity to get their children out of the house most of the day, it is still great to see that Clayton County is creating multiple avenues for its students to explore. For children who may struggle in more extensive classroom settings in-person, this could help tremendously and help catapult their learning as a whole.
The application is set to open in just a few days this Saturday, June 12th, and will close next Wednesday, June 16th.
