Virtual Virginia will no longer be an option for Petersburg City Public Schools students for the 2022-2023 school year. All students will be expected to return to in-person instruction at their assigned school.
Providing quality in-person instruction to all of Petersburg City Public Schools students will occur for the 2021-2022 school year. The option to attend school virtually will be offered through Virtual Virginia.
Quoted from the Virtual Virginia website:
"It [Virtual Virginia] is a program of the Virginia Department of Education, Virtual Virginia (VVA) offers online Advanced Placement (AP), world language, core academic, and elective courses to students throughout the Commonwealth and nation.
Virtual Virginia courses utilize both asynchronous and synchronous approaches to instruction, through which students will work independently and collaborate with their teachers and peers." SOL testing and other diagnostic testing will take place at the student's assigned school building.
The academic calendar for Virtual Virginia is not the same as Petersburg City Public Schools. Virtual Virginia courses start August 24, 2021.
