Enrolling at Tacoma Online School
This page is only for enrolling in the Online School in TPS called Tacoma Online.
To enroll in any other school, please visit the enrollment services webpage.
The deadline for enrolling in Tacoma Online is Wednesday, September 27th. Any enrollment form submissions after this date will be eligible to enroll at TOL at the next grading period. This will be in December (Tri-Mester 2) for TOL Elementary, and in February (Semester 2) for TOL Middle & High School.
Tacoma Online provides a personalized learning experience for students in kindergarten through grade 12. Students engage in academic learning led by teachers through a platform called Edgenuity at middle and high school and through Schoology at elementary school. While students generally participate in learning activities independently, they are provided multiple forms of support.
Tacoma Online students have the flexibility to learn from anywhere with the support and resources of Tacoma Public Schools at their fingertips. During enrollment, students are assigned to a cohort with opportunities for experiences that expand each student’s social, emotional and academic development. Students can participate in co-curricular activities and athletics at their neighborhood school in addition to opportunities offered by Tacoma Online.
For many students with special needs and Individualized Education Plans, Tacoma Online is a perfect fit. Tacoma Online’s staff includes certified special education teachers who partner with general education teachers to customize learning to meet each student where they are.
Tacoma Online enrolls students at the beginning of the school year, and again at grading breaks. For middle and high school, we enroll students also at the semester break mid-year. For elementary school, we enroll students at each trimester break.
