CCS District & Community News
School Board Meeting
Chatham County Schools is offering summer learning opportunities for the district’s students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Students meeting eligibility criteria may participate in academic programs designed to increase their overall preparedness for the next school year.
In addition to academic instruction, enrichment opportunities and digital learning tools for acceleration at home will be available to every student in the school system. Community groups are partnering with Chatham County Schools to provide the free programming.
Virtual Academy for the 2020/2021 School Year
In August, Chatham County Schools is planning to offer a fully virtual instructional option for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. It will be a little different from the virtual academy we offered this school year. The new option will be a stand alone program with virtual academy teachers serving virtual academy students only. Students will be enrolled in the virtual academy, not at their base schools.
The deadline to apply for the virtual academy is June 15. On May 19th at 6p.m. a virtual information session will be held, and a Zoom link for the meeting will be available closer that date.
