GaVS Policy - Upcoming Fall Breaks

  • Students should stay on the GaVS schedule that they chose upon entering their course. Even if the local school breaks do not coincide with the GaVS schedule, students must meet the assignment due dates.
  • Students, if your school has a fall break, please let your teacher know as soon as possible. If you do not want to work during your break, you will need to work ahead so that you do not miss any due dates.


Reminders for Students

  • Remember to check your gavirtualschool.org email and read the news items within the course daily.
  • Remember to print and follow your course schedule. Please do not wait until the day before the bi-weekly due date to begin your work!
  • Remember to show your work on everything that you submit for this class, including your quizzes and tests.

The late penalty begins on Saturday and is deducted at a rate of 10% of the assignment value per school day.
