Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS) will continue its School-Based Virtual Learning Program in the second semester (January 2022 - May 2022) of the 2021-2022 school year.  While the district continues to monitor student performance relative to virtual instruction in the best interest of student achievement, please be advised that school leaders and/or a designee will begin communicating with virtual learning students and their families who have performance concerns. These concerns include but are not limited to academic performance and attendance.  

As a result, students who have experienced performance concerns will be recommended for reassignment from the School-Based Virtual Learning setting  and returned to face-to-face learning. 

New Interest in School-Based Virtual Learning:  Beginning Monday, November 29, 2021 to Friday, December 10, 2021, parents/guardians who are interested in their students participating in the School-Based Virtual Learning Program for the second semester will need to communicate their desire to the student’s zoned school or school of attendance.  The School-Based Virtual Learning Program will enroll students based on capacity and/or students meeting the following criteria along with additional criteria located in the CCPS Virtual School-Based Handbook: 

Students must be passing all classes or have an overall average of 75% or higher    
Students must have consistent attendance of no more than 3 days of unexcused absences 
Students with significant health/safety hardships
Students in high school must be on track with high school credits
Parents are encouraged to review the 2021-2022 School-Based Virtual Learning Handbook:

“We are committed to providing students with the highest quality education possible,” said Dr. Morcease J. Beasley, Superintendent/CEO of Schools. “As this is the goal of the school system, it is also the shared responsibility of our students, their families and community members. Virtual Learning is a tool that must be used as intended in effort to maximize student learning and should not be viewed as a less rigorous alternative to face-to-face instruction. We encourage students to stay engaged and ask parents to monitor student performance using the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. I also commend the efforts of Assistant Superintendent Dr. Keith Colbert and other district and school leaders to install and maintain the CCPS Virtual Learning Program,” he concluded.
