KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — A private high school in Knoxville is moving to distance learning on Monday due to rising COVID-19 cases.
Christian Academy of Knoxville's high school will move to the CAK Distance Learning Model starting Aug. 30. Students should expect to return to in-person classes on Tuesday, Sept. 7, according to officials.
Officials with the school said that anytime they decide to move to distance learning, their goal will be to get back to in-person learning as quickly as is safely possible. The school is a 1:1 iPad school, with all students having iPads to connect to classes. Teachers said they are experienced in balancing hands-on learning with technology.
Officials said that there will be no high school athletics, arts, technology, or other extracurricular activities while on the distance learning plan.
Families were encouraged to check myCAK or their email accounts for more information.
