GAVS Student Course Survey
GaVS students, it is your turn to send us feedback about your experience as a Georgia Virtual School online student. Please check your GaVS email for important information regarding the GaVS Fall Student Survey. It is very important that all students complete the survey. We are always interested in your feedback and always looking for ways we can better serve the needs of all Georgia Virtual School students.
Thank-you for completing the survey!
Optional Credit and Extra Credit
Extra credit opportunities have been available each week of the semester via Jigsaw lessons. Make sure you submit the attendance survey (link available in the lesson) by the Wednesday of the Monday lesson. Completing of the attendance survey determines credit. Links to the lesson recordings are available immediately following the live lesson and are available for viewing all semester. Extra points are added to a major grade from the module of the lesson focus. As with optional credit, extra credit is not accepted late.
Additional extra credit and optional credit will not be added to "pad" grades at the end of the semester.
