Through the TCSS Virtual Learning Program, the Tuscaloosa County School System provides students the option to complete courses by way of an online, virtual platform. Virtual courses, which align with the Alabama College and Career Ready Standards, offer students the benefits of time, flexibility, and program customization.
Students who utilize the virtual program also assume increased responsibility in personal time management, organization, self-direction, and personal discipline to complete course and school requirements.
The virtual learning program is for students who will be in grades 9 through 12 during the 2020-2021 school year.
