Georgia Virtual Learning is your headquarters for online education from the Georgia Department of Education. Stay tuned as the program grows into your portal to various learning resources delivered by the GaDOE. Currently, you can find links to Georgia Virtual School, the online learning opportunity for 9-12 students, Georgia Credit Recovery, the teacher-less online location for students who need to recover credit from an unsuccessful course, and the GaDOE Express program which helps teachers and students with information related to the science and social studies Georgia High School Graduation Tests (GHSGTs). Georgia Virtual School is a program of the Georgia Department of Education's Office of Technology Services. The program is AdvancED accredited and operates in partnership with schools and parents to offer middle school and high school level courses across the state. Georgia Virtual School provides a teacher led, virtual classroom environment. Georgia Virtual School also equips students with an online media center and guidance center to support students throughout their online course experience. Credit Recovery (CR) provides a flexible learning experience in a teacher-less environment. Courses are fully aligned with the Georgia Performance Standards and allow students to earn credit based on competency of the content standards. CR extends students an opportunity to retake a course in which he/she was not previously successful. The program is only available to students enrolled in Georgia public high schools. Credit Recovery courses involve self-paced learning and consist of Flash/video presentations, review assignments, web-based learning activities, and unit assessments. All coursework can be completed at home or a student’s school base and requires limited assistance from a local school monitor or teacher. All courses include a final exam, and End Of Course Tests (EOCTs) for required courses must be administered by the school system upon course completion.
