As required by State law and public health guidance, Rutherford County Schools provided a remote learning program during the 2020-2021 school year. At this time, it is unclear whether State law and public health guidance will continue to require a remote learning program during the 2021-2022 school year. However, Rutherford County Schools is preparing for the possibility of a remote learning program by collecting applications for participation. A final decision about the actual availability of a remote learning program is subject to applicable State guidance. Rutherford County Schools will accept applications from Monday, May 10, through Friday, May 28. A separate application must be submitted for each child seeking admission to the remote learning program. Applicants will be notified of their tentative admission status, pending applicable State guidance, by Monday, June 14. To apply online, please visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JYRL7W2.
