  • How does Virtual Learning Differ from Virtual Learning Academy (VLA)
  •  
  • Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS) made the decision to start the 2020-2021 school year virtually for all students. In earlier communication, parents and guardians have been given the opportunity to choose an all virtual option (Virtual Learning Academy) for their students when a decision is made by the District to return to face-to-face instruction. The following chart outlines how the Virtual Learning Academy compares to the District’s current virtual learning for all start to the school year. Please note: Parents who previously applied for the Virtual Learning Academy will be given the opportunity to opt-out (remove their child from consideration) from the request for the Virtual Learning Academy. The opportunity to opt-out will only be necessary if and when the district transitions to a face-to-face instructional model.
