Remote Learning NOT an Option for 2021-2022

If your child ended the 2020-2021 school year as a remote learner, we need your feedback prior to next school year regarding your enrollment intentions.  Remote learning will not be offered during the 2021-2022 school year, per state regulations; however, Roane County Schools students who are interested in a remote learning option can enroll in our Roane County Virtual Academy, a virtual public school in our district.  To ensure we are meeting the needs of all students in our district, please take a moment to share your enrollment intentions with us for next school year, even if you plan for your child to return to in-person learning.

We greatly appreciate your time and look forward to hearing from you soon.
