Virtual Requests for 2022/2023 School Year: Steps
Students interested in taking a virtual course through Forsyth Virtual (FVA) or Georgia Virtual (GAVS) as part of their 7-period DHS schedule for the 2022-2023 school year must complete the DHS Hybrid Request form via the link below. This form should only be completed if you are seeking an online course(s) during your school day in conjunction with face-to-face courses. You MAY NOT request a fully virtual schedule. This form is only to be used to request individual classes for part-time virtual registration only. Complete the form even if you submitted a request during the waiver process. The waiver window is now closed, so virtual requests are only for courses that have been approved for your 22-23 schedule. If you are unsure of your courses for 22-23, they will be available as view only in Parent Portal from 3/29-4/1. Additionally, due to limited space and constraints with staffing (we must have a teacher to supervise virtual students), we’ve updated our guidelines for virtual students.
For the 22-23 school year:
- Students taking a virtual course that is offered face to face at DHS are required to be off campus during that virtual period. If a student does not have transportation to and from school during their virtual period, they will be moved back into the classroom to take the course face to face.
- Virtual courses will be scheduled at the beginning or end of a student’s day to mitigate transportation issues. For example, if a student is taking three virtual courses, those courses will be scheduled 1st-3rd periods or 5th-7th periods.
- The only exception to students being allowed to remain on campus during their virtual period is if a student is taking a virtual course that is NOT offered face to face at Denmark (ex. Intro to Healthcare, American Sign Language, Japanese, Latin, etc.). Students taking a course virtually because it is not available face to face will be scheduled into a virtual 1st or 7th period.
Please complete the request link below when you are certain about taking a course(s) online because changes will not be permitted, as staffing decisions are being made based on responses. Students are encouraged to take all virtual courses through Forsyth Virtual. GAVS should only be used if a course is not available through FVA.
**Georgia Virtual (GAVS) Fall/Spring registration opens on March 30th (GAVS summer registration opens on March 15th).
