2022-2023 GSCS Virtual Platform Information
Top of Page

The Griffin-Spalding County School System (GSCS) will offer the Virtual Program to students in Kindergarten - 12th grade for the 2022-2023 school year.  The district will continue to partner with Stride K-12 for grades K-5 and Edgenuity for grades 6-12.
 
To be eligible for enrollment, students must be enrolled in GSCS, meet the GSCS Virtual Program academic and attendance requirements, and receive approval from the academic committee at the appropriate zoned school.
 
Parents must attend a required orientation for the appropriate virtual platform(s).
 
Students with disabilities will follow the same application process, as shown above. Parents of students with disabilities should discuss their student’s unique needs with the student’s special education case manager to determine if virtual learning is in the best interest of the individual student based on the nature of the disability. This may inform the parent’s decision on whether or not to apply, but Virtual Program placement shall not be a placement decision of an IEP team. The Virtual Learning Program's services and supports are more limited than what is provided in the traditional school setting.
 
If the number of applicants exceeds the number of available seats, a lottery may be held to determine the final selection.  Students not selected through the lottery will be placed on the waiting list.  The GSCS Virtual Program waiting list will be composed of students who do not receive a seat in the Virtual Program, followed by students who submit applications after the deadline (in the order submitted).  The waiting list is created on an annual basis.
