Virtual Learning

Virtual Programs Available

Suffolk Public Schools provides multiple opportunities for students to participate in virtual/online learning.  Students enrolling in a virtual course must have access to a computer with Internet outside of school hours.  These students must be self-disciplined to complete the assigned modules in a timely manner.  

Virtual options are allowed under the following conditions:

 - Student is receiving homebound services and virtual course(s) address the student’s needs;
 - Student is participating in credit recovery (repeat courses for credit); and/or
 - Student needs additional support and online modules are assigned by instructors. 

Junior and senior level English and history courses may be taught in a blended environment, with students reporting to class at least once per week.  Other summer school classes may be taught through an online medium if enrollment is too small to offer a face-to-face course.  The summer school course is at cost to student/parent.

Courses taken for the first time must reflect 140 hours of instruction/online and an average grade of 60 or above must be earned to receive course credit.
