Teacher Grading and Response Time

Email Response Time:


Teachers check their email daily, Monday through Friday, and will respond to you within one school day.


Do not expect your teacher to respond during the weekend or on listed Georgia Virtual School holidays. In the event that you do not receive a reply, please email him/her once more.


If you do not receive a response after two attempts and 48 hours, call your teacher.


Phone Response Time:


Teachers check their phone voicemails daily, Monday through Friday, and will respond to you within one school day.

If you do not receive a response, please phone your teacher once more. The teacher’s contact information can be found in the Teacher Information widget on the course homepage or the course syllabus. If no phone response within 48 hours, please contact your facilitator immediately.


Grade Response Time:


Please allow a turnaround time of three school days after submitting an assignment during fall and spring semesters and one school day during summer semester; although you will often receive your grade sooner. For major projects, teachers may indicate a longer turnaround time for grading. Teachers will notify students when additional time is required to assess assignments such as projects.


You are encouraged to work ahead in your course. If you do so, your teacher will still grade your assignments within three school days.


Keep the turnaround time in mind when planning your schedule so that you can turn in assignments and still allow time for feedback.
