A virtual public school will have a meeting for interested Tyler area parents next week.

The meeting is scheduled for 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday at the Glass Recreation Center, 501 W. 32nd St., in Tyler.

Organizers will provide information about the family’s role in the education process and how group events are coordinated, among other issues.

The Texas Connections Academy is a free virtual public school for third- through 12th-graders. It uses teachers to direct the learning, deliver instruction and assign grades, but students access the school on the Internet, according to a news release.

The school provides all learning materials to students at no cost and each student receives their own learning plan and is taught at the grade level appropriate to their needs and abilities in each subject.
