Jenks Public Schools Reopens Virtual School Enrollment

JENKS, Okla. – Jenks public schools reopen registrations for their virtual school in light of recent COVID numbers in Tulsa County.

JPS emailed parents saying they are opening enrollment options for Trojan Connect, a full-time virtual school, for their Kindergarten to Grade 6 students in the upcoming school year 2021-2022 .

The email also stated that they had done “important work” to make Trojan Connect a “stronger program for students” entering its second year.

Some of the updates include:

  • Streamlining of communication efforts: the Trojan Connect program will now run from Jenks East Elementary (K-4) and Jenks East Intermediate (5-6). If and when students return to the face-to-face environment, they will return to their homes identified by the JPS district boundaries.
  • Connection time: Each week, a set time will be designated by a Trojan Connect teacher for students to come to campus for peer group interactions, library time, small group lessons, assessments and interventions.
  • Updated programming: Trojan Connect should take a closer look at the pace and alignment of Jenks public schools. Several platforms and tutorial programs will be used to support student learning.
  • Additional options: Music, art, physical education, and STEM are now available to students in Trojan Connect.
  • Individual help: There are now procedures to identify students at risk of not succeeding and are now part of the structure for all Jenks students in the program.

The deadline for parents to submit a request for Trojan Connect is Friday, August 13 at 5 p.m. Interested families of Kindergarten to Grade 6 students can apply HERE.

The process for Jenks students in Grades 7 to 12 is very different. If you have a Grades 7-12 student interested in Trojan Connect, JPS urges parents to contact their student’s school site to inquire about options and availability.
