Tornado Academy 2021-2022 2nd Semester NEW Enrollment Application

December 2, 2021

Please complete this application to enroll your student in the Tornado Academy for 2nd Semester 2021-2022. For students to be accepted into the Tornado Academy we will complete a records review and take recommendations from staff to make sure that this is a good learning style for your child.

Students participating in the Tornado Academy will be using one of two online programs designed by outside companies that specialize in remote learning. The curriculums are trusted, accredited, and approved as eLearning solutions. Students will be working with Tiffin City Schools staff members who will act as their Tornado Academy Advisors. These advisors are not teaching the content, as the curriculum comes from the program.

Since students will be replacing a school day with virtual learning, we have different requirements for different age levels. We recommend 30-60 minutes of daily work time for each course for students K-1. For students in grades 2-8, we recommend 1 hour minimum of work time for each course. Lastly, for our students in grades 9-12, we recommend spending at least a period of work for each course (45-60 minutes) for students in APEX. High School students taking the minimum of 5 courses should spend 4-5 hours in their course work each day unless they attend any in-person courses or Sentinel.

K-8 Students will be utilizing the Schools PLP platform, while our 9-12 students will be utilizing the APEX platform. Students do not have to log in at any special time or even specific days of the week, but they must be on-track. While these options allows flexibility for students and families, students must complete work according to the pacing guides in order to stay on track with their learning and earn the necessary credits for promotion to the next grade level or earning of credits towards graduation.
