Virtual Course Requirements

Attendance:
OCVS is a public school full-time program. Therefore, students will receive all instruction through this program.  OCVS students are expected to request all courses through OCVS unless required courses are not available from OCVS instructional staff.  Attendance in the program is expected to be for the entire 180 day school year and attendance will be taken each day. Orange County Public School’s attendance policy will apply to all OCVS students. Failure to meet attendance guidelines can result in withdrawal.

Pace
Students are expected to complete all required coursework for a given grade level during the school year.  Therefore, it is imperative that all students follow the schedule for submitting work for each course.  The schedule and rate at which a student completes work are referred to as “pace”.  Students of whom are not on or ahead of pace with a passing grade can be withdrawn from OCVS.  Students who fall behind pace at any other interval during the school year are required to attend face to face sessions in which they receive direct instruction and supervised learning. Students that are not on pace MUST attend mandatory workdays unless excused by their teacher. Failure to attend can result in withdrawal.
