Upon acceptance into the Virtual Program, all high school students will attend an academic advisement session with his or her high school counselor.  Counselors will work with students to determine whether high school graduation requirements can be met in the Virtual Program or through a combination of Virtual Program and transferable courses not offered by Bulloch County Schools.  If the counselor, student, and parents reach the conclusion that the Virtual Program does not support the student’s graduation plan, the student will be placed in the face-to-face program.
