Virtual School for Troy City Schools
The Virtual School for Troy City Schools is designed to provide an option for students who learn best outside of the traditional classroom setting. Online content will be shared for students to master learning objectives, complete assignments, and take classroom assessments. Students will be expected to come to their assigned school campus to take benchmark assessments and participate in state testing.
In order to participate in Virtual School, students must live within a 60 mile radius of the Troy City School district. Those residing outside of the school attendance zone will be subject to out of district fees. Students must have reliable internet connectivity in order to participate in Virtual School.
If a student’s grade is below a 65/D at the end of a nine week grading period, he/she will be placed on academic probation. If the student’s nine weeks grade is below a 65/D for a second time in school year, the student will be returned to the traditional school setting. Any student with a nine weeks grade below 60/D will be immediately returned to the traditional school setting.
Parents choosing the Virtual School option for their students, should complete a separate Virtual School Intent Form for each child by Friday, July 16th in addition to registering the students for school using the Linq registration platform.

“Trojans Committed to Success”
Troy City Schools is committed to maintaining the health and safety of students and staff while ensuring a strong continuity of services to address students’ academic needs. The following plan is in place for the 2021-2022 school year:
Maintaining Health and Safety
In the absence of state or local mask ordinances, the wearing of masks will be optional for teachers and students.
Classroom and common spaces such as cafeterias will return to pre-COVID configurations and procedures. Following CDC guidance, unvaccinated individuals may choose to wear masks when closer than six feet with an individual from another household.
School custodial staff will frequently clean restrooms and common areas using recommended sanitizing supplies. While food service will return to pre-COVID routines, the water fountains will remain in use only as water bottle refill stations.
We are asking parents to be vigilant about not sending sick students to school. While we will no longer take student temperatures daily, teachers will continue to send students exhibiting signs of sickness to the school nurse. Troy City Schools will continue to partner with the ADPH to follow contact tracing, isolation, and quarantine recommendations for unvaccinated students and staff.
Ensuring Continuity of Services
While there will not be a Blended Model of instruction, families may choose traditional, face to face instruction or enroll in Virtual School for the entire school year if criteria are met. Schoology, Edmentum, and ACCESS will be used to provide virtual instruction, and students will be provided with a school chrome book for use with virtual instruction.
We are all working diligently to assess student learning gaps and create plans to address student academic needs. Response to Instruction teams at each school are utilizing ongoing benchmark and progress monitoring assessments to create individualized intervention plans to support struggling learners. Intervention plans include targeted, small group instruction to teach content the student has not mastered.
School counselors will collaborate with our school mental health services coordinator and outside agencies to identify and support the mental health needs of students and staff. Our school nurses and child nutrition staff will continue efforts to keep our staff and students physically healthy.
