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 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 Bulloch Virtual Program

  • Provide an academic advisory session for students and enroll students in appropriate courses.
  • Provide Chromebooks for students who need them.
  • Provide orientation and training for parents/students.
  • Teachers will schedule times to provide supplemental (individualized and/or small group) support for students.
  • Teachers will work with families as much as possible to provide flexibility for learning support. This may include recorded supplemental lessons for students to view later or schedule an alternate time to meet virtually outside of the normal school day.
  • Accommodations and modifications for students with Individualized Education Programs or 504 plans will be provided when feasible.
  • Monitor student progress weekly and follow up with students/parents as needed.
  • Teachers will provide regular feedback to families through frequent parent/teacher conferences.
  • Answer emails and other modes of communication from the parent/student within 24 hours.
  • Notify the student/parent of any required state or district assessments.

Expectations of Students/Parents for the Virtual Program

  • Attend mandatory academic advisement session.
  • Students will be expected to complete lessons each week and make adequate progress towards standards mastery.
  • Parents will ensure students have a device and reliable internet access to be able to participate in the virtual learning program. Chromebooks can be checked out from the school if needed. In addition, if reliable internet access is not available, the parent will notify their child’s school to discuss potential options.
  • Attend frequent parent/teacher conferences. 
  • Participate in parent/student orientation and training sessions for the virtual learning program.
  • Answer emails and other modes of communication from the school within 24 hours.
  • Participate in any state or district required assessments.
  • Ensure all assessments are taken by the student without unauthorized assistance.
  • Reach out to the school when additional support is needed.

Virtual Learning Platforms

Edgenuity - Virtual Platform for 6-12

Bulloch County Schools offers an online Virtual Learning Program option for grades 6-12 through Edgenuity, and additional course offerings for grades 9-12 through Georgia Virtual School.

Edgenuity and Georgia Virtual School are both online learning platforms with whom the school district has had a successful partnership for more than 10 years to provide non-traditional learning environments, course recovery, and additional course credit obtainment options for middle and high school students.

Step Three

The first folder contains Parent and Teacher Guides. The next folders contain sample lessons which teach each skill in various ways to meet student’s individualized learning styles.  Language Arts and Math sample lessons are shown for this tour of the platform. The Science, Social Studies, Art, Music, and Physical Education lessons at each grade level are designed in the same curriculum layout and style.

  • These SchoolsPLP examples are not first-day-of-school samples, nor do they reflect a lesson in its entirety.
  • They are randomly selected and may appear at first glance as too advanced for an age group. Remember when you review these sample lessons that the instruction will allow students multiple opportunities to learn the lesson's skills in multiple ways toward mastery of an academic standard.
  • A student's individual skill level will determine if it is necessary to complete every component in a lesson.
  • The components are designed to appeal to different learning styles.
  • While SchoolPLP's instruction will not be led by Bulloch County Schools' faculty, it will be monitored and facilitated by our faculty, who will provide additional remediation and enrichment opportunities for students.
