8th Grade: News and Events
Two Options for Summer Online Courses
Florida Virtual School (FLVS) and St. Johns Virtual (SJVS)
Both options have the same curriculum, but SJVS offers local teachers and FLVS offers more classes. Online classes are to be approved by the school counselor. Your eighth grade school counselor is Kelly Schraff. She will review your class choice and either approve or deny the course. Approval is based on course progression, students’ current grades, and the rigor of the course chosen. You will receive an email after the course has been approved so be sure to put in a working email. Please check your spam folders as some email carriers will mark as junk or spam. You will not receive an email from the virtual teacher to begin the class until right before the start date that you choose when registering.
