Virtual Program Waitlist Open
All Greenville County students have the opportunity to apply for the full-time Virtual Program waitlist. The application for the 2023-2024 GCS Virtual Program waitlist is open through 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, August 1. Students on the waitlist will be scheduled based on the availability of space in the Virtual Program and the ability to meet the student’s schedule in the Virtual Program.
If you want to apply for your student(s) to attend Kindergarten with the GCS Virtual Program for the 2023-2024 school year, you must wait until after June 27 to apply in Backpack.
To apply, students must be enrolled in Greenville County Schools and parents must have a BackPack account.
The Virtual Program will not be offered for Specialized/Magnet Programs such as Charles Townes Center, Language Immersion, preschool programs or the most intensive special education services, which is typically referred to as self-contained programming.
If your student attended the Virtual Program for the 2022-23 school year and you want them to participate in the Virtual Program for the 2023-24 school year, you MUST APPLY FOR THE WAITLIST. Your student WILL NOT be automatically enrolled in the Virtual Program for the 2023-24 school year.
Acceptance into the Virtual Program is not guaranteed just by submitting an application through BackPack. Student’s grades, attendance, previous performance in the Virtual Program and schedule/credit needs will all play a factor into whether a student is accepted or declined for the 2023-24 school year.
We will email notifications of acceptance and Virtual Program contracts if a spot(s) opens up during the summer. Students in the Virtual Program will be scheduled based on grade level and academic record.
Students will be expected to participate daily in live sessions at scheduled times with their cameras on and their entire faces visible. Those who fail to do so will be marked absent and are subject to truancy consequences. Exceptions are based on extenuating circumstances and must be pre-approved in advance by the Virtual Program Director. Students accepted into the Virtual Program for the 2023-2024 school year, will not be eligible for Magnet Academies or changes in assignment choice. If a student is approved for a magnet or choice slot after being accepted in the Virtual Program, parents must state their intent by the deadline or forfeit their Choice/Magnet slot.
