Student Orientation Course
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. 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.
Start Date Schedule
Regardless of the start date, the course ends May 6, 2016. Student work is due bi-weekly on Thursdays at midnight. Check course schedules for specific due dates. Work turned in after the deadline on the course schedule will be accepted within 3 school days with a late penalty assessed. Late penalty begins on Friday and is deducted at a rate of 10% of the assignment value per school day. Work submitted on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday is considered 1 day late.

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 visit http://www.gavirtualschool.org/ to begin the account creation process.
