VIRTUAL LEARNING OPTION FOR SECOND SEMESTER

Application for Virtual Learning Option Second Semester


Applications are now open for 100% virtual learning for second semester of the 2021-22 school year.  All virtual instruction will be provided by Virtual Virginia teachers, not Bedford County teachers. 

Admission to the virtual learning program is not guaranteed.  If accepted, students will be enrolled with Virtual Virginia at the start of second semester. 

Before applying, consider the following:

>Your child is expected to be online for synchronous instruction for most of the day.  This means they must sign on to live instruction and be present in the virtual class. Young students need to have adult support available.

>You must have a dependable internet connection.

>Once a student is enrolled and we pay tuition, the student must remain with Virtual Virginia until the end of the 2021-22 school year.

>If your child has had or currently has truancy issues, they will not be accepted into the program.

Complete the entire application, including the Parent/Student Agreement with signatures.  Parents must complete a separate application for each child.

Submit completed application packets directly to Dr. Karen Woodford, BCPS Chief Learning Officer.  Applications will only be accepted through 5:00 pm on Friday, October 22, 2021. 
Applications received after the 10/22 deadline will not be considered.

Details about the program and application process along with contact information for questions can be found in the application packet at this link:  Virtual Learning Information, Application, and Parent Agreement Packet
