Greenville County Schools To Expand Virtual Program As An Option For 2020-21

Beginning this fall (2020-21), students and families in Greenville County Schools will have an additional choice option with the expansion of the GCS Virtual Program. 

Previously available only to secondary students, the GCS Virtual Program will now offer full-time online instruction for students in grades K-12 using devices and software provided by the school district.

Teachers in the Virtual Program will provide face-to-face instruction via live streaming and coursework through Google Classroom and other platforms. Students will follow a daily schedule just as they would in a brick and mortar school. They will be able to see and hear dedicated GCS teachers deliver standards-based content, ask questions, participate in classroom discussions and small group work, and turn in classwork and tests, all from the safety and comfort of their homes. Students will be taught by local certified teachers who are focused on 100% virtual instruction throughout the day.  At the secondary level, instructors will be certified, subject specialists.

Students will remain on the roll of their regular school and are eligible to participate in extracurricular activities. High school students are eligible to earn a diploma from their home-based school.

The deadline for fall enrollment is on August 1. More information on the Greenville Virtual Program, including enrollment procedures and answers to frequently asked questions, will be available on July 6.
