Tacoma Online is a K-12 school that provides students an anywhere/anytime online school experience. Students engage in academic learning led by teachers through a platform called Edgenuity 3-12 and Schoology K-2. While students generally participate in learning activities independently, they are provided multiple forms of support.
Students are assigned Tacoma Public Schools teachers for all of their courses.
Student learning is personalized by their teachers.
Daily opportunities are scheduled for students to meet with their teachers for academic assistance.
Students are also supported by daily meetings with their PACE Coach (homeroom or advisory teachers) designed to support independent learning.
Students with an IEP have assigned special education teachers who provide support by collaborating closely with general education teachers, families and students to make appropriate modifications for student learning.
Families will receive communications and updates from Tacoma Online weekly.
At the secondary level, students have access to various extracurricular experiences (sports, clubs, etc.) at their home schools and Tacoma Online.
At the secondary level, electives and courses offered through Tacoma Online will support promotion and graduation but may vary from the electives and courses available at other schools.
At the elementary level, students can attend daily online class meetings with their teacher and peers at various times throughout the day. These can be small or large group meetings.
