TEC Connections Academy Commonwealth Virtual School (TECCA), the state’s largest full-time, tuition-free virtual public school for K-12 students, is now enrolling students for the 2017-2018 school year and is hosting in-person information sessions across Massachusetts.
Interested families are encouraged to learn more about how virtual school works and if it’s the right fit for their students by attending one of the in-person information sessions held by TECCA over the coming weeks. An information session for families of potential students will be held in Hyannis on May 30.
TECCA’s success is apparent in results of the school’s annual survey of parents, which was completed by an independent third party. Eighty-seven percent of parents indicate they would recommend the school to other families, and 92 percent say their children are satisfied with TECCA’s program. Eighty-four percent of parents gave TECCA an “A” or “B” grade, whereas public school ratings from the 47th Annual Phi Delta Kappa/Gallup Poll of the Public’s Attitudes Toward the Public Schools shows that traditional public schools received 70 percent “A” or “B” grades from parents. Over ninety percent of parents surveyed are also satisfied with the helpfulness of their TECCA teachers and agree that the curriculum is high quality.
Families will have the opportunity to meet with a TECCA faculty member or representative, explore the program and curriculum, and ask questions about the enrollment process. Interested families may also attend Parent-to-Parent meetings for the opportunity to speak with currently enrolled families in a more casual setting. For those unable to attend an in-person session, real-time interactive online information sessions and an on-demand session accessible 24/7 are also available. A complete list of events and links to the online information sessions are available on TECCA’s website.
