Virtual and School Based Instruction

GCSD families have the option of choosing between two tracks of instruction: Virtual or School Based.

Families who chose the Virtual option will have students who receive 100% of their instruction online. This is regardless of the DHEC numbers.

Families who choose the School Based option will be led by the District (Remote, Hybrid, Prime), based on monthly DHEC numbers. Parents will not have the opportunity to choose between these options.

Once a choice is made between Virtual Instruction or School Based Instruction students will remain in this instructional choice until the conclusion of the first Semester. Please see the District's Reopening Plan summary for further clarification.

GCSD Virtual Program Application

Georgetown County School District has developed a virtual program for families who are concerned about the COVID-19 pandemic, but want the benefits of having access to certified teaching while remaining in the District. Students who enroll in this program must commit to remaining in the program until the end of the 1st Semester.

If you are interested in this option for the 2020-2021 school year please submit your application by Wednesday, July 29th.
