Virtual Learning Program Registration 

Bulloch County Schools offers a fully-online virtual learning program for Kindergarten through twelfth-grade students. Registration for the 2022-2023 school year ended on March 25, 2022. Families may still register and be placed on a waiting list.

Waiting List Placements

All applications received after March 25, 2022, will be placed on a waiting list. Placements off the waiting list will be considered based on space availability at the end of the first and second nine-weeks of school. Certain exceptions may apply for students with approved hardships.

If you wish to register for the Virtual Learning Program and be placed on our waiting list, please use this link, after you have reviewed the Virtual Learning Program Handbook for Parents and Students.

Hardship Requests to Return to School

There are only two conditions that may occur, where a parent or guardian may submit a hardship request to the school district to possibly  remove a student from the Virtual Learning Program and  return the student to traditional learning. 

  • Hardship due to change in the employment status or the parent or guardian or lack of supervision; or
  • Hardship due to new or increased severity of a medical condition of a student or other household member

If you believe you have another significant hardship other than the two listed below, please contact Pam Goodman by email or at 762.233.7936. Hardships outside these mentioned allowances are rarely approved

Hardship: Change in Employment Status or Lack of Supervision

Hardship requests for a mid-year change from the Virtual Learning Program to traditional learning will typically be considered only when a parent or guardian has had a recent job change that prevents them from being able to provide adequate supervision to a younger student enrolled in virtual learning.  If a parent or guardian needs to submit a hardship request for this reason, please do the following:

  • Print and complete the Hardship Request:  Due to Job Change or Lack of Supervision Form below. This is required documentation. A portion of the form must be completed by your employer.
  • Make an online hardship request here and upload your form.
Hardship: New or Increased Severity of a Medical Condition or a Student or Other Household Member

Hardship requests for a mid-year change from traditional learning to the Virtual Learning Program will typically be considered when a student or a member of the student’s primary household has developed a new medical condition or experienced an increase in the severity of a medical condition, such that a healthcare provider reports that continuation in traditional learning puts the patient at a significant health risk.  If you need to submit a hardship request for this reason, please do the following: 

  • Print and complete the form below that is applies to your situation. This is required documentation. A portion of the form must be completed by your healthcare provider.
  • Make an online Hardship Request here and upload your form.

High School Scheduling & Academic Advisement

High school students need to maintain a close relationship with their school counselors regarding their schedules and post-secondary plans.  Any concerns regarding a Virtual Learning Program schedule, interest in academic advisement for post-secondary goals, assistance with scholarship applications, and more, should be directed to the student’s school counselor at their high school.

Update a Virtual Learning Student's Information
  • Residency and Guradianship Updates: If you have had an address change, please send an updated proof of residency to the data clerk or registrar at your child’s zoned school so that our records can be updated.  If there has been a change of custody, please contact the data clerk or registrar for further instructions.
  • Telephone Numbers and Emergency Contacts Updates: Updates to telephone numbers and emergency contacts may be made by the Virtual Learning Program Registrar, Amy Burgin, via email. E-mailed requests to update telephone numbers and emergency contacts must be sent from the e-mail address the school district has on file for the parent or guardian in the primary household.
