    2021-2022 Plan for High School Students in TCO

    Close up on students' hands typing on a plugged in laptop.

    Basic facts about enrollment and programming:

    • Students will remain enrolled in the school they have been attending.
      • Ongoing communications from their assigned school will continue, with some specifics about TCO - along with any additional communications necessary from TCO staff.
    • Students will be enrolled in classes that contribute to their graduation.
      • Courses will be included in the TSD transcript for each student with documentation captured in Infiinte Campus, the TSD grading system. 
      • 9-12 online programming will include core academic subjects and limited elective options.
    • Direct assistance and instruction for courses will come from Thompson School District (TSD) teachers.


    • Learning will have 20% synchronous (or 'same'/real time) connections (with teachers &/or other students) as well as asynchronous ('anytime') learning activities.
    • Digital Course content will be loaded into a common learning management system such as Google Classroom.
    • Teachers will hold weekly office hours to support students in their learning.
    • Students will be allowed to switch from TCO (100% online) to the "in-person" instructional model for TSD at the semester break. 


    • If extra-curricular activities are provided at the student's school of enrollment, the student will have the option to participate in those activities.
    • Students and families will not be charged additional fees from TSD to participate in TCO.
      • Supply lists or materials that are expected of participants in TCO may be minimal, and digital texts may be used in classes. Note: If there is any "materials pick-up" required, that would be planned and coordinated by the student's school of enrollment.
