While Valdosta City Schools is closed during the coronavirus pandemic, COVID-19, we are unable to offer online learning options and/or direct educational services to the general student population. At this time we cannot ensure all students and staff will have equal or equitable access to home Internet connection, an online learning system, and/or devices to access full online learning options. In addition, unfortunately, our district does not have an online learning system to effectively provide instruction and one-on-one support for students with disabilities.
 
Please continue to encourage students to stay engaged in learning during the school closure. Students can read every day and access VCS Home Learning Resources. Free educational resources, updates, and suggestions for home learning are posted below.
 
As VCS district personnel develop grade/content-specific resources, we will make them available here, as well. These resources are OPTIONAL and intended for student engagement during our extended COVID-19 leave. Students will not be penalized for not completing any digital or print resources.

For English Language Arts (ELA), it is important to review standards-aligned skills with students. We have resources available below to support you with this goal. VCS also wants parents/guardians to be aware that it is critical for students to spend time each day reading connected and authentic text (Rasinski, 2017; Stahl & Heubach, 2005). Set a goal for your children to read at least 15 minutes per day.
