Partnership Pioneer Families,
FYI: WCPSS Virtual Academy Open House
There will be a virtual open house featuring information about the new WCPSS Virtual Academy on Thursday, July 16 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. WCPSS officials who are designing the Virtual Academy will be on hand to address questions that have been collected from families and teachers over the last several weeks. You may submit your questions via this Google form. They will address those questions that are the most common among our community. Attend the Open House on Thursday beginning at 5:30 p.m.: www.youtube.com/user/WakeCountySchools. It will also be archived on the YouTube channel.
Information is available for the WCPSS Virtual Academy, which will offer fully-online instruction for families who wish for their children to learn at home full-time. The application window is July 10-20. For further information visit the Virtual Academy Website: https://www.wcpss.net/Page/43730
