Fall Break

Students should adhere to the GaVS schedule that was selected upon entering the course. If your local school has implemented a fall break that does not coincide with the GaVS break, you will still be required to meet the assignment due dates for GaVS. Working ahead of schedule will ensure you stay on track. Make sure to communicate with me if you plan on taking time off due to a fall break at your local school.

Late Assignment Submissions

Late assignments are accepted a week after the initial assignment deadline. The chart above reflects the percentage that will be deducted each day the assignment is not submitted. If you are enrolled in the 18, 16, or 14 week group and did not submit all your assignments by September 13 assignment deadline, you have until 11:59 p.m., Friday, September 20, to submit assignments late.
