CONYERS — Rockdale County Public Schools is offering a full-time virtual learning option for the 2020-21 school year. Parents of children in grades K-5 will be able to apply for the virtual option now through July 24.

During the same time period, the school system is asking parents of middle and high school students take a survey to indicate their desire to participate in full-time virtual learning.

Details and links to both the application and the survey are on the school system’s website at

Elementary parents who desire the full-time virtual learning option will apply through their Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Instructions on how to apply and detailed program information are provided in the K-5 Elementary Virtual Option Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) available at

To better plan and meet the needs of students, RCPS seeks to understand how many middle and high school students have an interest in full-time virtual learning. The school system has created a short survey to capture the interest level of middle and high school parents and students.

RCPS asks that one survey be completed for every student who has an interest during the survey window through July 24. In the event both parent and student reply to the survey, only the parent choice will be considered. Those who indicate interest through the survey will be sent more detailed information on how to apply for the middle or high school virtual learning option.
