I understand that the students accepted into the virtual academy are committing to a full year of virtual education. Placement will be on a space-available basis only. The superintendent or designee will make the final decision regarding admission. Please note: NO application will be considered complete until the application fee and all educational records from the student’s current school have been received.
I understand that my child's behavior, attendance, and grades can affect his/her enrollment in the Gulf Shores City System, as stated in Policy 6.1.2 (b) - Admission to Schools. Problems including, but not limited too, excessive tardiness, truancy, disciplinary issues, and/or poor grades may constitute a basis for the student's immediate dismissal. I agree that transportation arrangements are my responsibility, except as required by law. Non-resident admission may be rescinded per Gulf Shores City School System policy.
