School Year Online Courses and Registration

What online courses will be offered during the school year?

The Secondary School Curriculum Guide contains the list of all possible online courses. Adequate enrollment and the availability of certified instructional staff will determine which courses actually run during each school year. Online courses typically offered during the school year are shown below. You will work with your counselor to add online classes as you make course requests in the spring.

How many online classes may I take during the school year?

9th and 10th grade students may enroll in one online class that can be counted as part of the standard course load or in addition to it.

10th and 11th graders may enroll in up to two online courses that can be counted as part of the standard course load or in addition to it (Regulation 5-26.1 of the School Board of the City of Virginia Beach).

Students may apply for a waiver, at their home school, to have their hours of face-to-face attendance altered. The school will make that decision.

How do I register for an online course for the school year?

Work with your home school guidance counselor to consider and schedule online courses.

What else should I know about taking an online class?

Online courses follow the school calendar but begin two weeks after the school year begins.

Teachers establish due dates for assignments and tests throughout the course. Online courses are NOT self-paced and are NOT completed according to the student's personal timetable.

All online course offerings are dependent on sufficient enrollment and the availability of qualified and appropriately endorsed instructional staff. Even the courses you choose with your counselor may not actually run if too few students sign up for them.

All online courses address the same content as their traditional face-to-face versions but are delivered over the internet through a learning management system. This requires daily access to a computer and a high-speed internet connection.
