Alabama Virtual Academy approved for this year

Alabama has now joined the full-time virtual school community by partnering with K12 to open a K-2 school this year, and expanding grades after each year. It is a quick turnaround with school starting September 8 -- mere weeks after gaining approval.

Superintendent Eddie Tyler of Eufaula City Schools, who is partnering with K12, had the following to say in the official press release:

"Our online school will provide families a high-quality option and give students the individualized instruction and support to succeed." 

My guess is Eddie forgot to look north to Tennessee (or ignored the results there altogether). Or, maybe he looked beyond Tennessee for support in making that statement. Just not sure where.

And finally, when does the fiscal first quarter end? That's right, September 30. Interesting.
