Reminders for the 24-25 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. This requirement is a result of limited space to house virtual students and limited staff to supervise.
• 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 have their virtual course scheduled 1st or 7th period.
For the 2024-2025 school year, a new process will be in place to obtain parent permission for students who wish to take a course through Georgia Virtual School (GAVS). GAVS is an external, accredited program through the Georgia Department of Education. Students may take virtual classes through GAVS as part of their school schedule or take classes as parent/student pay in addition to their school schedule.
Parent permission is required for students to take a GAVS course. This form only needs to be completed once per school year. The instructions that explain how to complete this form are found by clicking here.
Students will still need to submit individual course requests to Georgia Virtual School (https://gavs.geniussis.com/) to request individual GAVS courses.
