Katy ISD Provides Survey To Continue Virtual Academy

Tagged in:

Katy ISD parents of eighth- through 11th-grade students will soon be receiving a survey regarding whether the district should offer a virtual high school option next year. The district recognizes that experts are recommending all students should return back to school in the fall, but that many families still have concerns. 

The KISD board of trustees discussed the possibility of extending the Katy Virtual Academy at their most recent meeting. The Virtual Academy currently provides the option to learn from home.

The Virtual Academy proved to be successful program for many high school students, but if it were to continue it would be unaffiliated with any of the district's existing high school campuses. The virtual high school would offer online courses to ninth- through 12th-grade students only, and the school would have its own graduation and diploma.
