How Do I Enroll a Child in the WSSD Virtual School?

Two-Part Process

For parents/guardians who have reviewed the program handbook and are prepared to commit to enroll a child/children for 2021-22, we have instituted a two-part process in order to separate enrollment and course registration. The enrollment window is open from July 12th through July 30th in order to provide adequate time for our brick and mortar schools to finalize class sections and to schedule students with our partner, EdOptions Academy.


PART 1 - ENROLLMENT


  1. Log in to your Parent Portal account on any day during the enrollment window.
  2. Locate and select "Forms" from the left navigation pane.
  3. Scroll down the list and select [WSSD] - Virtual School Enrollment Form.
  4. Complete the Enrollment Form and submit the form.


After you submit the enrollment form, the WSSD Virtual School Site Coordinators will receive a notification and respond via email to the parent/guardian who completed the form. The email will confirm receipt and provide information about course registration. In the case of students with an IEP/GIEP/504, we will notify the office of Student Services and request a team meeting.


PART 2 - COURSE REGISTRATION

While the course registration process is straightforward for elementary students given it is a grade level assignment, secondary students will need to ensure courses meet the current progression and satisfy all District requirements described in the Strath Haven High School Silver Guide or Middle School Curriculum Guide. Therefore, the WSSD Virtual Site Coordinators will facilitate consultation with one of the District Counselors.
