As a result of the recent announcement by Governor McMaster that public schools will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, VirtualSC has made the decision to waive the proctored final exam requirement for all students enrolled in a VirtualSC course that will be ending in the Spring 2020 semester.

At the conclusion of the Spring semester course, VirtualSC teachers will issue a final course grade based solely upon the student’s coursework.  Students should still follow all pacing provided to them by their teacher at the beginning of the course, as this decision will not impact the course’s overall pacing guide.  Students should still continue to submit work and remain engaged in their course and communicate regularly with their teachers.  

We recognize that some students may have legitimate issues accessing their course from home, but we ask that those students communicate directly with their teacher to develop a plan to complete the course.  At this time, Spring VirtualSC courses are scheduled to end on April 26, 2020 as originally scheduled at the start of the semester.

The VirtualSC family is hoping for the health and safety of all of our students and stakeholders in the coming weeks.


Bradley Mitchell is the Director of the Office of Virtual Education at the South Carolina Department of Education.
