GAVS Course Update

Mrs. Brumbelow: American Literature and SAT Prep


Please make sure you are using your parent auditor account to view the details of your student's average. We don't want any surprises at the end of the semester. Remember that averages within registration are updated every Wednesday, but you can always go into the course to view the most up-to-date average. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.


We have two more major assignment due dates: April 26th and May 3rd. Since our due dates fall on a Wednesday, any assignments listed on the schedule for Thursday, May 4th and Friday, May 5th will be due by midnight on May 5th. No assignments will be accepted after Tuesday, May 9th.

Final Exams

Students in SAT Prep, along with homeschooled and private school American Literature students, will take a final exam in the course. Finals are Wednesday, May 10th and Thursday, May 11th. Students must take their finals on one of these days. The final exam is 20% of a student's grade.

Georgia Milestones

Public school students in American Lit AB and B will take the EOC - Georgia Milestone as their final exam. They will complete this test at their school. Students should get in touch with their facilitator to find out the testing day and location. I have provided my students with a study guide and other resources to help them prepare. They need to try their very best because the Milestone is 20% of their grade.

Last day of class

GAVS's last day of school is Friday, May 12th. Students will not have access to the course after this date.

Final Grades

Grades will be available in registration May 18th. Check the GAVS homepage for details regarding grades. Instructors are not allowed to email grade information or to release final averages over the phone, so please be patient and wait until they are available in registration. Also, if your child took the EOC, we have to wait until their school provides us with the score in order to process their final grade. If you see an Incomplete as the grade, it is because we still have not received the EOC score yet. Continue to check back in registration as we receive those scores daily.
