Senate Bill 289 Online Learning Opportunities

Students have the option of requesting online courses during the school day as a regularly scheduled class, or outside of the school day working independently from home.

During School Hours: Requests are subject to counselor and administrative approval, school infrastructure (computer availability is limited during school hours), and supervision. There will be no cost incurred by the student for courses taken during any of the regular periods of the school day. Online course options may be accessed through our district Virtual Learning Academy, Georgia Virtual School, or other vendors and local virtual schools that are on the state-approved list.

After School Hours: Requests are subject to counselor and administrative approval. There will be costs incurred by the student with courses taken outside of the regular school day. Online course options may be accessed through our district Virtual Learning Academy, Georgia Virtual School, or other vendors and local virtual schools that are on the state-approved list.

To facilitate the process of registration, we will accept an electronic application February 20, 2017 through May 31, 2017 for courses to be taken during the 2017-2018 school year. The application window opens each spring for each subsequent year.

This clearinghouse provides parents and students the ability to search for available courses, online course providers, and guidelines for what constitutes high quality online courses.
