GCS Virtual Program Quick Tips and Answers


         Virtual School questions can be answered on the GCS Virtual Program Website 

Locating your student’s GCS Virtual class schedule/Schedule questions

    Student’s schedules can be accessed through their Student Backpack and Parent Backpack.

    You have enrolled your students in the K-8 GCS Virtual Program. Your student’s home-based school does not make those schedules. If a student’s schedule is in-correct, parents will need to email gcsvirtual@greenville.k12.sc.us directly and someone in the virtual program will make the correction.

Enrolling your current GCSD student in GCS Virtual

    At this time, there is a waiting list for the GCS Virtual program. If you would like to complete the application form to be added to the waiting list use the following link. GCS Virtual Program Application. If a spot opens up, the GCS Virtual Program will notify you.  Until then your student would be registered at their home based school in the brick and mortar setting and would need to attend.

   Medical notes need to be sent to gcsvirtual@greenville.k12.sc.us. Special consideration will be made if room becomes available

  Students who are new to GCS and request Virtual

   Parents need to sign up on the waitlist.  The student must still be registered at their home-based school.  Medical notes need to be sent to gcsvirtual@greenville.k12.sc.us:  Special consideration will be made if room becomes available

Parent requests student to come back to Brick and Mortar

    Parents will need to contact their home-based school to request the students coming back into the brick and mortar setting. The parents will then be notified if space is available for their student to return. If space is available, they will be enrolled back at their school and the Virtual school program will drop them from their virtual classes.  

Parent requests for their student to come into the building for a related arts period  ONLY

    Parents will need to contact their home-based school to request the students coming back into the brick and mortar setting for a Related Arts class. The parents will then be notified if space is available for their student to return for the Related Arts Class. If space is available, the school will enroll the student back at their school for that particular class. The Virtual school program will drop the Related Arts class that was on their virtual schedule only. All other classes will remain the same. There will be a virtual class period that shows up in their schedule that saying “On-Campus R-A”.

Parents/Students Requesting to Change a Course

The priority is students with no schedule, wrong class (GT/Reg ed), then those that have something missing, lastly a related class change. 

Parents should be directed to complete this form: Schedule Change Request Form
