RIVERVIEW, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
PIVOT Charter School Tampa, an accredited tuition-free public school
serving students, grades 6-12, in Hillsborough County has scheduled
information sessions to help interested students and parents learn more
about the program during open enrollment for the 2013-14 school year.
Information sessions will be held at PIVOT Charter School, 3020 South
Falkenburg Road, Riverview, the following days and times:

Saturday, Feb. 2, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
PIVOT's blended educational model combines a rigorous online curriculum
with one-on-one support from state-certified teachers called Educational
Coordinators. As part of the PIVOT program, students work with their
lead Educational Coordinator to develop a personal vision for success,
define goals to help them reach their vision and create an individual
education plan that they complete at their own pace. Students attend
school either 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. or 12:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday
through Friday and can access the curriculum from anywhere with Internet
connectivity. In addition to Educational Coordinators available on-site
during school hours, PIVOT students have 24/7 technical support and
online access to experienced, state-certified teachers who can provide
immediate assistance 24 hours a day Monday though Friday.
"PIVOT offers a truly student-centered approach to learning that gives
students a flexible schedule, the ability to learn at their own pace and
individualized support from our on-site Educational Coordinators as well
as real-time access to qualified online teachers when they need
assistance after hours or away from school," said Liz Bretz, PIVOT
Charter School Tampa principal. "In addition to strong academics, we
offer students service learning and dual-enrollment options, numerous
extracurricular activities and free hub-based bus service for those
families needing additional assistance getting their student to school."

a full middle and high school curriculum, including more than 15
Advanced Placement courses, a wide variety of electives and a service
learning option. Core courses align with Next Generation Sunshine State
Standards. Students can jump-start their college careers with early

School is ideal for many students, including accelerated learners
