Marion County School District recognizes that some parents may not feel comfortable sending their children back to school for in-person, face to face instruction. As the district finalizes the re-opening plans for the fall, we are excited to share that we are planning to have a new option this year for our families, a new online Virtual Academy program.
The Virtual Academy will serve students in kindergarten through twelfth grade as a comprehensive schooling option. Students enrolled in the Virtual Academy will adhere to South Carolina academic standards. Additionally, students will have the opportunity for proficiency-based learning opportunities through personalized instructional curricula as well as interactions with a certified teacher via Microsoft Teams and other online platforms. Students enrolled in the program will be provided a device and families will be required to participate in an orientation/workshop regarding the program.
Marion County School District would like to gather information on the interest level of our families. If your family is interested in being a part of the Virtual Academy and would like to receive updates please click here to complete an interest contact form.
Families that respond to this survey will be provided updates as information is released. Questions about the Virtual Academy can also be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
For families NOT interested enrolling in the Virtual Academy, the district will be sending information on the opening of school as soon as possible.
Marion County School District is asking every one of our families to fill out the following survey about re-opening schools this fall. We want to know parent preferences and expectations given the restrictions that may be in place next year. This survey will close on Friday, July 3, 2020.
All returning students may now fill out their annual registration information online! Families will need to get a letter from the school with a snapcode and then go to this link: Returning Student Registration. Letters, computers, and assistance will be available on-site during Monday's Open House.
