Important Update: Virtual School 7th and 8th Grade Elective Schedules

  • Dear Parent/Guardian:

    Welcome to the Dothan City Virtual School Family! We are looking forward to working with you to guarantee your child a successful school year.

    At this point in time, we have been required to make some changes to our elective class schedules for 7th and 8th grade virtual students. 7th and 8th grade students will only attend Dothan Preparatory Academy for band and chorus classes. These changes will minimize the required face-to-face class times that students will need to attend at Dothan Preparatory Academy.  If your child previously registered for a band or chorus elective class, that class will remain on your child’s schedule.

    PLEASE BE REMINDED: You are responsible for transporting your child to their SCHEDULED band or chorus class on a daily basis. There will not be any bus transportation provided. You are also required to drop off and pick up your child in a timely manner before and after their assigned class.

    There will be no other face-to-face elective opportunities for 7th and 8th grade students offered at this time. We will provide additional online elective learning opportunities for all 7th and 8th grade students. These courses will include Computer Science Discoveries (7th) and Career Explorations (8th). In addition, all 7th and 8th grade virtual students will participate in a REACH Advisory Course. This additional advisory/support class will enable our team members to build significant relationships with students and provide them with any support that they might require as they become accustomed to a virtual learning environment.

    Thank you for your support and understanding –

    Christina Johnson, Principal
