                                   FLVGS Completion Policy

Only through continuous communication can students be successful in an online Credit Recovery
course. It is essential that the student and instructor maintain regular contact to be certain the
student is on track to complete the Credit Recovery course by the specified end date.
Upon being activated into a Global School Credit Recovery course, students will have a 14-day
grace period without a grade being issued. If a student withdraws from a course within the first 14
days, the grade report that they and their school will receive will classify the drop as “Withdrawn –
No Grade".

It is very important, and should be stressed to students, that this grace period be used as time for
the student to demonstrate that they are indeed willing to put forth the effort to be a successful
online student. Experience has taught us that students who are not making appropriate progress
during the grace period are much less likely to successfully finish the course.

                                      Facilitator Guidelines


The role of facilitator is an important component of a successful online program. Facilitators need
not be subject or technical experts but will act as a liaison to help find content or technical people
who can help students, if needed. The facilitator is also the person who provides positive support
and encouragement to students. Facilitators are expected to provide the following services:

*Review student progress reports for each online student at least once a month.
*Oversee students to ensure participation in coursework and completion of assignments.
*Act as liaison between students and online instructors and/or parents, as needed.
*Proctor/monitor exams as necessary.
*Provide data and responses to surveys and other inquiries about students taking Florida     Virtual
Global School courses.
*Communicate with the Principal or Channel Partner if questions or problems arise.

                             Success in the Online Environment

Florida Virtual Global School is committed to promoting 21st Century skills for students. We want
our students to be lifelong learners and make effective and innovative use of their skills. At Florida
Virtual Global School, learning and thinking skills are an integral part of each course. These skills
include critical thinking/problem solving, communication, creativity/innovation, information/media
literacy and contextual learning.

Students who choose to participate in courses with Florida Virtual Global School need to examine
their personal skills and aptitudes for taking a class online. The following attributes will greatly
contribute to a student's success:

· Self-motivation - Students can direct their own learning environment and methods to fulfill
course requirements and achieve individual academic success.
· Independent learner - The online environment enables students to learn at their own pace,
relieving the stress of feeling rushed or pressured and providing enjoyment in the learning process.

· Computer literate - Although it is not necessary to have advanced computer skills, students
should possess a working knowledge of electronic e-mail, the Internet, as well as basic keyboarding
skills.
· Time management - Students must be able to organize and plan their own best "time to learn."
There is no one best time for everyone, but the key to learning is to make the time to learn.

· Effective written communication skills - Students must use electronic e-mail and discussion
forums to communicate with their peers as well as the instructors. The ability to write clearly to
communicate ideas and assignments is essential. This method provides the learner with rapid
feedback as well as a means to inform instructors of any concerns or problems that they may be
experiencing.
· Personal commitment - Because there are no bells that begin and end classes, students must
have a strong desire to learn and achieve knowledge and skills via online courses. Making a
commitment to learn in this manner is a very personal decision and requires a strong commitment to
perform in order to achieve academic success. Overall, the staff of Florida Virtual Global School
believes that every individual who has the motivation and self-direction to take our courses will
achieve success in our "any time, any place, any path, any pace" virtual environment. Meeting the
needs of our individual students is our top priority.
Last but not least, successful online students are students who decide for themselves that online
learning is a choice that they want to make.
