How do I register?

I put in my request for a course what happens now?

Once a course has been requested, that request is reviewed by the student's counselor and approved or denied.  Once the course has been approved, the student will receive a FVS Course Registration confirmation.  At that point, you should log back into fulton.genuissis.com and make the payment. Registration is not complete until payment is received.  Students failing to pay for courses prior to June 5th will be dropped. 

What if I want to check on the status of my registration?

You may also log back into fulton.geniussis.com to check the status of your course requests.

Do I have to pay for Summer School?

Students may take up to one credit for classes failed that they need to repeat for credit free of charge.  Students who are taking a class for the first time will pay the following:

½ Credit = $225 ($180 with free / reduced meal status) per course
1 Credit = $450 ($360 with free / reduced meal status) per course

How many classes can I take?

Rising 9th graders may request any of the following courses which will be reviewed by their current middle school counseling staff: General Health, Personal Fitness, and American Government.  Rising 10th-12th grade students may take more than one class but are encouraged to seek the guidance of their school counselor. Students who need to retake a class may attend summer school provided by Fulton County Schools at no cost up to 2 credits. The 2 credits may be taken in a combination of face-to-face and virtual with up to one credit taken face-to-face and up to one credit taken virtually.  Additional credits/courses require tuition.

Can I take a Virtual Class and a Face-to-Face class?

Yes, students are allowed to take a class from more that one modality. All classes are subject to counselor approval.  Please consult your counselor about course selection and scheduling.

What time do I have to log in? 

FVS courses are asynchronous so students may log in at any time to work on the course.  Teachers are assigned to each class and are available for support and guidance. Students should be prepared to spend about 3 hours per day/per class to complete the class in the summer session.

When is the last day to register for FVS Summer School?

June 2rd is the last day of registration and late registration starts June 5th -June 9th and is based on availability of enrollments.

What do I need to get started?

Students will need stable internet service, a computer or tablet, an internet browser (Chrome or Firefox).  For more detailed information about computer specifications click here

What does "A", "B" and "AB" mean?"

'A' is the first semester of the class and 'B' is the second semester.  'AB' notes the entire year of the class in the selected semester.

Can I take and A and B section(full year) of a class in Summer School?

Taking both sessions of a class in summer school means that students are attempting to complete 36 weeks of instruction in 6 weeks.  That would take a minimum of 6 hours per day dedicated to working on classwork for the entire summer school period. Please consult with your counselor about course scheduling and selection.

If I drop classes, can I get a refund?

Students must drop a class by June 9 th to receive a full refund of course fees paid.  Students who are administratively dropped are not eligible for a refund.

I'm going on vacation during this time with my family, can I still attend summer school?

Yes, you are able to attend summer school while you are on vacation as long as there is a strong internet connection.  Some International destinations may not have sufficient internet. If you will be away on vacation at any time during the summer school session, please let your teacher know and complete additional work to get ahead.

What textbooks do I need for the summer session of Fulton Virtual Classes?

FVS does not use textbooks except in AP courses.  Currently, we are not offering AP Courses during the summer session.

Which classes require an EOC (End of the Course Test)?

9th Grade Literature and Composition, American Literature, GSE Algebra, GSE Geometry, Biology, Physical Science, and U.S. History.  Click here for more information on the EOC.

 

Making progress in summer courses

There are no set times that students must work in their courses so they can participate at the times of the day that are convenient to them. Students may work at their own pace as long as they make the required progress in their course by the dates listed below. Students can work ahead if they want or need to. If a student will be on vacation during the term they will need to make sure they work ahead so they do not miss a completion benchmark. Any student that has not reached the completion benchmarks below by the dates listed will be administratively dropped from their course. Dropped courses will not appear on transcripts. Students that are administratively dropped will not receive a refund of tuition paid.
