Virtual School Information

INTRODUCTION

Taylor County’s Virtual Instruction Program (TC-VIP) is open to all eligible students within the district. TC-VIP is an innovative educational experience that takes place in an interactive learning environment created through technology. The Taylor County Public School (TCPS) district remains steadfast to a commitment of excellence. All grades earned through participation in TC-VIP will be assigned by the Virtual School instructors and not the local teachers. Grades will be sent electronically to the district office for upload to FOCUS for transcripts and report cards. It is very important for parents and students to have ongoing dialogue with the Virtual School instructors to ensure there is no miscommunication about your child's academic performance while participating in these online programs.

VISION STATEMENT

The students of Taylor County School District will receive a rigorous and relevant education that prepares them to be college and career ready.
