Let's Get Started!

Georgia Virtual School is pretty awesome; it's on all the time. 24-7 style. There are some things you have to know about deadlines and such, but once you get that figured out, you can work any time of the day or night. Let's get started!

YOU NOW HAVE A GAVS EMAIL ACCOUNT

When you log in to your course, you will see a logo for your email. Did you even know you HAVE email?


When you created your GAVS account, an email address was automatically created for you. You're expected to use this email address to correspond with your teacher. All you have to do is click on the icon and log in.


You can login using the same username you were assigned when you created the GAVS account and your password is the same password you chose during your account creation. Your email address will be: username@gavirtualschool.org

Are you having trouble viewing Content in your course?

If you are having trouble viewing GaVS content, downloading assignments, or accessing the full functionality of our web tools, check your browser. The preferred browser for GaVS is Mozilla Firefox. Visit this topic in the help desk if you need more information!

SUPER IMPORTANT INFO ON TESTS AND QUIZZES!

It is really important to read this...you need to know. All quizzes and tests are timed. Once you open a quiz, you cannot pause it. The timer will run and once the time is up the ONLY action you can perform is to click submit.


PLEASE!!!! Don't open the quizzes or tests until you're ready to take them.

HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?

If you're new, you'll have lots of questions. On the right side of your course home page, you can find a link to your teacher's email address and phone number. Ask your teacher questions...it's what we're here for.


Oh...and although it might seem weird, calling or texting your teacher in an online course is perfectly ok; that's why we give you our numbers! Just be sure to identify yourself and leave a message if your call isn't answered and you will get a response within 24 hours Monday-Friday.

Note: Special Thanks to Ms. Heather McCormick for sharing this Smore with me to use with my classes!
