My son took classes with Hamilton County Virtual School. All I can say is if you want your child to make up a credit without learning a dang thing, this is for you. The HCVS course my child was in was a JOKE! It was mostly at lot of reading and clicking to turn pages, VERY few assignments, and a "teacher" that didn't seem to be there. My son asked questions that took the teacher DAYS to answer and then the answer didn't even make sense. This year he is having SO MANY problems in his class this year because he didn't learn what he needed to in his HCVS "class" - but he got a good grade and "earned" his credit. Thanks, HCVS, for giving my son a credit for nothing and setting him up for failure in his class this year. Great job!
One has to wonder if HCDE is doing this because they think it will be a good way to educate our children or if they are just worried that they will lose money by parents enrolling their kids in other - BETTER - virtual school programs. For Pete's sake school board!! Please, please, PLEASE have someone look at the what has passed for a "course" at HCVS in the past and make sure your new virtual "school" doesn't have the same the same watered-down course work, absent teachers, and credits that are given out for basically clicking buttons.
