Who is eligible for the 2022-23 full-time virtual learning program?

Two years of analysis of student performance in a full-time virtual learning environment have provided strong evidence that average to above average levels of motivation, self-regulation, and independent work habits are critical to successful outcomes.

During the application process, PWCS will review 2021-22 first semester and third quarter report cards in the areas outlined below - which provide quantifiable indicators of student readiness for full-time virtual learning.

In addition, families must commit to a full year of participation in the full-time virtual learning program

High School students will continue to have access to virtual learning. High School students needing full-time virtual learning will work with their school's counseling office. Counselors will review the student's academic career plan to confirm a student is on track for on-time graduation. Additionally, counselors will review academic grades, attendance, and conduct to ensure that virtual programming best meets each student's unique needs. In alignment with Regulation 630.02-2, "Virtual High School," full-time virtual learning requires the review and approval of the Associate Superintendent for High Schools. Similar to this year, full-time virtual classes will be provided through Virtual Virginia and Virtual Prince William as appropriate to the scheduling needs of each student.
