Alamance-Burlington Schools Conducting Parent Interest Survey about K-5 Virtual School
ABSS considers adding grades K-5 to the new Alamance Virtual School for grades 6-12
Alamance-Burlington Schools (ABSS) is conducting a survey to gauge parent/student interest about the possibility of adding grades K-5 to the new Alamance Virtual School (grades 6-12) that will open in the fall of 2021. The K-5 virtual school option may be of interest to parents and students who would prefer an alternative to in-person learning.
The Alamance Virtual School online learning environment will foster creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration, as well as mastery of information, media, and technology skills and offer rigorous course content that meets state and district performance standards. Students will report to an ABSS facility for any mandated state testing. This virtual learning opportunity is open to any students in Alamance County.
Students will be taught by ABSS teachers and attend the Alamance Virtual School full time during the regular school day. A minimum commitment of one year's attendance is required when applying. Elementary students will have access to encore classes, but their choices could be limited based on the number of students enrolled and the mandated state electives. Students who participate in the district programs such as Spanish Immersion, A+ Arts, Leader in Me, and STEAM will not be guaranteed to continue in those programs as the teaching staff will be limited.
If there is a high level of interest expressed for a K-5 virtual option, ABSS will host an information night for parents to hear more details before committing to the Alamance Virtual School for the upcoming school year.
Interested parents can visit the ABSS website to express interest on the survey at www.abss.k12.nc.us.
The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, April 23, 2021.
