Tennessee Virtual Academy not enrolling new students this year

WATE 6 On Your Side Staff - MAYNARDVILLE (WATE) - The Tennessee Virtual Academy says it will not enroll new students this school year, but will instead work with the approximately 800 students already enrolled with a focus on changing assessments and concentrating on current curriculum.

If the school feels the changes are successful, they say they will work on enrolling new students next school year.

The academy previously announced they'd be closing down because the state ranked them among the worst performers. Families of three students who attended the online school sued earlier this year asking for it to remain open.

The Union County school system teamed up with K12, Inc. in 2011 to create the academy for students in kindergarten through eighth grade across the state.
