January, enrollment numbers are 1,000 more than the previous semester for a total around 4,000 students.
TPS Executive Transformational Leader of Curriculum Jim Gault said the surge in enrollment was quite an adjustment for the district. “You have to reposition staff, train new staff, and in this latest case bring in 20 new teachers to service the extra thousand kids,” he said.
For families not in Virtual Academy, the district will be announced in mid-January on the possibility of returning to in-person learning.
