Virtual Learning Option & Sample Videos

Virtual Program Option

Students can enroll and participate in a fully-online virtual program. This option is available to Kindergarten through 12th grade students. Parents who choose the virtual program option will be required to sign a parent agreement that acknowledges their responsibilities.  Students may be transitioned back to a traditional school program or removed from the virtual program if they do not abide by the expectations of the program. The expectations/conditions of the virtual learning program are:

Overview of the Bulloch County Schools Virtual Program

  • Primary instruction will not be delivered by Bulloch County Schools’ teachers.  Instead, lessons are recorded by other educators and delivered through the designated learning platform.
  • The primary learning platform for elementary schools will be SchoolsPLP.
  • The primary learning platform for middle and high schools will be Edgenuity.  
  • Bulloch County Schools teachers will provide supplemental instruction using the designated learning platform or Google Classroom.
  • Students will be able to login in to their designated learning platform (SchoolsPLP or Edgenuity) at any time during the day to complete required weekly lessons, and grades will be taken.
  • Not all courses will be available through the learning platforms (SchoolsPLP/Edgenuity). Additional courses will be built when possible to allow students to have access to the same courses/content that they would have in the traditional face-to-face school setting. 
  • Students will be eligible to participate in extracurricular activities to the extent possible.

Expectations of Schools for the BCS Virtual Program
