             APRIL 1, 2020 ONLINE INSTRUCTION UPDATE: 
For the past several weeks the Fulton County Area Vocational School staff has been working on our plan to deliver education online in a virtual environment with our students. We are nearing the end of the Enrichment/Review phase of our instruction. On Monday, April 6, 2020, our teachers will be launching a virtual education experience for ALL our students as we transition into the Continuity of Education phase of instruction. Teachers are embracing this new normal in the absence of access to our vocational and technical school environment. While a large portion of our program instruction is hands‐on, we have always stressed the importance of the theoretical knowledge that supports our technical skills. FCAVTS has always believed that developing strong leadership and employability skills leads to a strong community.  We are committed to making the best of the online educational experiences for our students in this unprecedented time in history.   Continuity of Education is the overall term for educational practices that occur in the event of a prolonged school closure. All learning provided by our teachers will align to industry standards and the state approved Program of Study. The students of the FCAVTS will be accountable for their work by submission through various methods of delivery.

Attendance will be taken via the program teacher and a record of that attendance and participation will be maintained. The expectation is that our students WILL participate in these online activities. Teachers will provide grades and feedback on assignments given during this time. Teachers will post assignments using existing platforms such as Schoology, Google Classroom, and Canvas, as well as emailing assignments directly to students through their district email accounts. Teachers may post assignments, task sheets, videos, links, and other related material as needed. Students are required to complete the assignments provided and seek out help if needed. Teachers will be available during regular school hours to answer emails and questions students may have.  FCAVTS is committed to helping our students reach their career goals. Our school may be closed, but we are going to continue to provide instruction to our students. We understand that these are unprecedented times for all of us.  Please stay safe and healthy.
