Greenville County Schools will open its second enrollment window for the 2021-22 virtual program from Thursday, April 1, until Friday, April 23.
In order to register for the program, students must be enrolled in GCS and parents or guardians must have a BackPack account.
Students enrolled already in the virtual program but who want to return to brick-and-mortar school need to notify their school before April 23.
The schedule for enrollment depends on the severity of the pandemic, according to the district.
“If during the summer it is apparent school will open in the fall on an altered schedule or with pandemic protocols in place, and/or if vaccines are not widely available, additional windows will be made available for parents to select the virtual program,” stated a release from GCS.
The school district has changed some aspects of the virtual program, according to a release by GCS. This includes increased attendance when students will be required to participate during certain scheduled times. Parents will also be able to request a return to brick-and-mortar schooling, preferably, the district notes, at the end of a nine-week grading period. Finally, students in the program will be scheduled by grade instead of by the school.
Programs like the Charles Townes Center, language immersion, preschool programming and intensive special education will not be able to be virtually offered.
