How It Works (Middle School)
Work Completion Expectation
In middle school, student learning changes to a semester-based approach where students are required to earn a passing grade of 70 percent or above on their assignments and online lessons. Due dates are assigned to lessons to encourage consistent, steady progress for academic success. Attending teacher-led, direct-instruction, online synchronous “Class Connect” sessions, along with completing coursework, will also assist with student success. Middle school teachers will work with families to ensure students are progressing academically as expected. To achieve success, it’s in the student’s best interest to follow the pacing schedule that’s assigned for each course.
Who is this intended for?
The TNVA middle school program serves students in grades 6–8 who reside within Tennessee.
What are the costs?
Because we are a public school program, TNVA is tuition-free. The K12 curriculum materials are provided at no cost. Common household items and school supplies like pencils and paper are not provided. A computer and internet access are required to access the curriculum and attend classes. In certain cases, based on financial need, TNVA may loan a computer to an enrolling family. This determination will be made during the enrollment process.
