The Parent Account gives you information about your child’s grades and progress in their course. 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.
Parents should read the knowledge base 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.)
