Parents and Online Learning

Welcome to Bay Virtual School!

As a Bay Virtual School parent, you will be able to:

Monitor your Child's Progress

After your student creates a New Student Account, you will receive an email with information on how to access your Parent/Guardian Account. Just remember, when assisting your child with the creation of the student account, that the information needs to be 100% accurate. Be sure that your student's email address and your email address are filled in properly; we need all contact information in order to initiate these accounts.

Support Academic Integrity

BVS expects a full commitment to academic integrity from each BVS student.


Academic integrity means:

  • Your work on each assignment will be completely your own.
  • Your collaboration with another classmate on any assignment will be pre-approved by your instructor.
  • You will not practice plagiarism in any form*.
  • You will not allow others to copy your work.
  • You will not misuse content from the Internet.
  • You will not provide assistance to anyone scheduled to take the same course semester/final exams in the future.
  • Your parent/guardian will attest to the fact that your work is completely your own.

Communicate with Teachers

Parents will have account information that will allow them to communicate with teachers by phone, email, and/or text to answer questions about the course and your child’s academic progress. Our teachers follow the Bay District Schools’ calendar and will respond within 24 business hours. You will also have the opportunity to meet your child’s teachers at our Open House.
