Virtual School Option for the 2021-2022 school year

It will be the parent’s/guardian’s responsibility to notify the zoned school principal and/or school counselor of their choice to attend Virtual School.  After the parent notifies the school, the school counselor will ensure that all criteria and eligibility requirements have been met.  The counselor will then inform the Alternative School Principal.  After participating in the required Virtual School Orientation, parents will receive further instructions.

Escambia County Schools will work cooperatively with the parent/guardian and student to ensure that student schedules and courses are aligned to the student’s needs, and that all parties are collaboratively monitoring student progress and reporting grades.  All virtual school program students in grades 4-12 may be required to take state mandated tests in their zoned school.
