Educating Students Through Online Learning

WCS Online offers online classes to students in ninth through twelfth grades who are enrolled in one of the district’s high schools.

A majority of the classes offered through WCS Online are taught in a hybrid format. While most of the work is completed through the online platform, students are also required to attend some in-person class meetings. The in-person meetings are used for direct instruction, group work, and class activities or assignments that supplement the online content. These class meetings will be held after-school hours at a central location within Williamson County.

Our math and science online courses meet twice a month. PE II, Personal Finance, and Lifetime Wellness have synchronous and asynchronous virtual meetings and do not meet in person. All other courses meet three times a semester. Specific information about meeting dates and times for all courses is available in your school counseling office.

The in-person meetings are used for direct instruction, group work, and class activities or assignments that supplement the online content. Students are required to attend these in-person meetings. So that students can determine if they should register for the classes based on their ability to attend the in-person meetings, schedules for the meetings for each class are available through the high school counseling centers.

The online classes through Williamson County Schools offer an alternative to traditional classes and can be beneficial for students for various reasons. However, not all students find online classes to be the best fit for them. We currently serve students who are looking to earn more credits than they can fit into their traditional schedules and students who are interested in trying their classes in a different format. Students who are the most successful in online classes are good with time management and self-discipline and are willing to reach out to the teacher when they need help. Students are most successful in online courses when they are interested in the subject matter, as well.

No, the courses are not self-paced. The classes offered through WCS Online follow the same pacing as the traditional classes offered in our brick-and-mortar buildings. Work is typically sent out one week at a time, with the assignments opening each Sunday and closing on Saturday. Students have the flexibility to complete the assignments at a time of their choosing throughout the week.

See your school counselor to register for these classes. The registration process for WCS Online will occur at the same time as course registration for traditional courses for the next school year
