Greetings!

We are looking forward to working with you and your student to meet your virtual education needs! Here are a few tips to get you started and familiarize you with what to expect next!

Before District Approval
 

  • If you have not done so already, please contact your school district's virtual instruction program contact to see what other documents or paperwork must be completed prior to approval.   
  • If your student has an IEP, 504 Plan, or an EP, you will want to make sure that the document is updated prior to entering virtual school.
  • Elementary students have the option of choosing 1 elective: PE, Art, or Music.  Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 who are struggling in reading or who did not pass the FSA reading test may take a remedial reading course for their elective. If you do not want your child to take PE, they will need to submit a PE Waiver form to the district contact. You must let your district contact know which elective your student would prefer.

After District Approval

Once your school district approves the application, you will receive an email with the next step for enrolling your student in virtual school. 

  • You will receive a link to submit an application to K12. Please understand that you are already approved to attend MyDistrict Virtual School. This is the process used to enroll your student in their system and create your Learning Coach (LC) account with K12.  
  • If you already have a K12 account for a different student, you do not need to create another one. Log in and you will be prompted to create a student account.
  • After the Student OnLine School (OLS) account is created, you are done with your part of the registration. 
  • MyDistrict Virtual School staff will begin working in the system to place your student in classrooms and order relevant materials beginning in the middle of July. 
  • Materials will arrive at your address between 1-2 weeks after the order is placed. Please note that books and materials cannot be delivered to a PO Box address. Be sure to have a physical address listed in your account. If not, please call our office to have this information updated. 386-329-3831 x-2.

     

After Materials are Ordered

The 2020-2021 school year officially begins on Monday, August 10th.  Your student will have access to courses beginning one week prior to the start of school.

  • If your materials have not arrived before the start of school, you can still log in and begin working. Your student's teacher will contact you within the first week of the start of the school year. In the meantime, you can begin working on the "Introduction to Online Learning" lessons on your student's daily plan. Getting Started Without Materials
  • It is important that you and your student make a daily school day schedule and have a dedicated working space.  Students will need pencils, pens, crayons, and paper or notebooks. Creating an Effective Learning Environment (Video)
  • Your student should be working 4-5 hours a day on schoolwork.  Although this is a virtual program, your student will be doing a lot of offline work as well. Your role as the Learning Coach is crucial for a successful virtual school experience. 
  • Attending virtual school is like going to school in that students should be working every day and making progress towards mastery. It is the Learning Coach's responsibility to enter attendance daily. Your teacher can go over how to mark lessons and attendance during your first phone call. Recording Attendance

Getting Started

  • Click on the link below to view K12's resources for families.   You will want to view the "Online School Systems" tab and then choose OLS (K-5) or Online Middle/High School (for 6th graders) to help you get started.  http://engage.getfueledservices.com/index.html

We look forward to working with you and your student.
