Welcome To My Class: Spring 2017
Mrs. Allen's Online Welcome Letter to Parents and Students
Welcome Parents and Students!
Student Orientation Must Be Complete Prior to the First Day of Class!
Welcome to Georgia Virtual School. I will be your student's teacher. The student’s first task is to complete the Student Orientation Course. It is important to complete topics in order and complete all items on the checklist.
The following items are required for the completion of the Student Orientation Course (SOC):
- students complete all sign off
- students complete all agreement quizzes
- students make a 100% on the final Student Orientation Quiz.
- Students may choose to opt out of the Student Orientation Course; however, students who elect to opt out of the Student Orientation Course are still responsible for all content presented in the course.
Students must finish or opt out of the SOC before gaining access to the course. Student Orientation Takes a full 24 hours to process after completion. Following successful completion of the SOC, the date on which students will gain access to the course is dependent upon which schedule was selected at the time of registration.
Spring 2017 Schedule Group Start Dates (Students selected the scheudle when they registered.)
Wednesday Due Date and Late Work Policy!!! Student work is due WEEKLY! (Please note - This is a different policy than past semesters.)
The Parent Account gives you information about your child’s grades and progress in their course. Each week you will receive an automated email with your child’s grade range in each of his/her classes. If your child’s grade drops below a 70, you will receive a phone call from me.
In order to view your child’s progress, you will need to have a parent account within our Student Information System and your account must be linked to your child’s GAVS account. If you already have a parent account please do NOT create a new one. If you have never created a parent account or you have not linked to your student’s account, follow the steps listed below.
Parent Account Information
Parents should read the knowledgebase articles in the order listed below. The steps must be completed in this order.
During the parent account creation process, you will be required to visit http://www.gavirtualschool.org/ to begin the account creation process.
2. Link child to parent account (Student's GTID is needed during this step.)
