Welcome Parents and Students!
Welcome to Georgia Virtual School's Spring Semester 2016. Please read the following newsletter very closely as it contains very important information for beginning your GaVS course. Course and school policies will be covered as well as important information to help you get off to a great start! This semester I will be teaching AP Human Geography AB, and AP Human Geography B.
Student Orientation Course
Welcome to Georgia Virtual School. I will be your student's teacher.The student’s first task is to complete the Student Orientation Course. It is important to complete topics in order and complete all items on the checklist.
The following items are required for the completion of the Student Orientation Course (SOC):
- students complete all sign off
- students complete all agreement quizzes
- students make a 100% on the final Student Orientation Quiz.
- Students may choose to opt out of the Student Orientation Course; however, students who elect to opt out of the Student Orientation Course are still responsible for all content presented in the course.
Students must finish or opt out of the SOC before gaining access to the course. Student Orientation Takes a full 24 hours to process after completion. Following successful completion of the SOC, the date on which students will gain access to the course is dependent upon which schedule was selected at the time of registration.

Parent Account Information
The Parent Account gives you information about your child’s grades and progress in their course. If your child’s grade drops below a 75, you will receive an automated phone call. 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.
Parent Account Information
Parents should read the knowledgebase 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 visithttp://www.gavirtualschool.org/ to begin the account creation process.
