The district is recommending that families choose the instructional model that works best for them. The choices are face-to-face, site-based virtual, and Atlanta Virtual Academy. See details about the instructional models below.
The APS Face-to-Face Model is designed for families who feel comfortable with returning their students to a face-to-face, in-school environment. It provides the opportunity for students to return to campus and interact directly – but safely – with their teachers and classmates.
The APS Site-Based Virtual Model provides the opportunity for students to continue to learn at home while remaining enrolled and taught by a teacher at their home school. This model is designed for families who don’t feel comfortable sending their children back to school but ultimately plan to rejoin their enrolled school in the future. Based on the number of parents who choose this option, the local school will work to provide a virtual option for students.
Atlanta Virtual Academy Model
The APS Atlanta Virtual Academy offers learning anytime and anywhere. It is a flexible and customized learning model that supports students’ unique, individual needs, while satisfying state requirements for completion. This model is designed for families who wish to remain in the virtual environment regardless of shifts in delivery models at the local school.
