Berkeley County Virtual School (BCVS)
What is the "BCVS pathway"?
*This is not the Berkeley County "Click" option, which was direct (face to face), daily instruction from a Berkeley County teacher.
The BCVS pathway is an alternative learning program and there are a limited number of positions. We will consider a limited number of students for the 2021-22 school year. Students participating in the virtual pathway take classes online outside of the school setting. The classes are not direct instruction, rather they are using a learning platform where the student reads to learn. To be a successful member of the BCVS, a student needs to be an independent, self-motivated learner. A BCVS student should also have good technological and communication skills. For students in grades K - 5, there will be a high level of caregiver involvement and weekly TEAMS meetings with the teacher in order for the student to be successful. There is no cost to participate. Families would need to have reliable access to the internet to participate.
These students are considered Berkeley County School students, would earn credits towards graduation and would be able to participate in school activities, if eligible. Some of the activities in which virtual pathway students can participate are as follows: picture day, field days, plays, dances, sports, clubs, and other activities the same as students who attend school in person each day.
Enrollment for the fall semester of the BCVS is open and will close on August 10, 2021. By filling out this form, you are not guaranteed admittance. It should be a mutual decision between the BCVS, the parents, and the home school that this would be the best pathway for the student. If you have already submitted your request, we will be contacting you over the summer about whether you will be in the BCVS pathway for the 2021-22 school year. Please monitor your email regularly for updates.
If you have any questions, please email Holly Branch or Donna Kline.
