Dear students and parents, Welcome to Georgia Virtual School. My name is Cree Aiken and I will be you/your student's teacher for the course, Banking and Investing. To help you/your student gain a better understanding of the learning management system, you/your student’s first task is to complete a Student Orientation Course. Students should have received a separate email with login information and instructions for accessing the Student Orientation Course. Completion of the Student Orientation Course (SOC) requires that students earn a 100% on all tasks in the course. Within one work day of finishing the SOC, students will gain access to my course. Students will select a start date of either August 9, 16, 23, or 30. Regardless of the start date, the course ends December 10th. Work is due weekly on Friday’s at 5:00 PM. The penalty for late work is ten percent per school day late. Assignments cannot be accepted if more than five school days late. To help parents be better informed about their child’s course, the course syllabus is posted on the course homepage. Also, students are required to read and digitally sign a Work Ethics Agreement. It is important that students learn and practice proper work ethics to prepare for the world of work. This document is also posted on the course homepage. Also, parents should receive a separate email with login information for your own parent auditor account. This is how parents will check the child's grades. If you have questions on how to access the parent auditor account, please call or email me. If the grade drops below a 70, you will receive an automated phone call and also one from me. The school will have Open House and AP Information Night. Parents will receive and email with information about the date and time. Additionally, I will have weekly online meetings called elluminates with students. It will be on Wednesdays at 4:15. Each of these has a graded assignment with it that students must complete. If students cannot attend a meeting, they must watch the recording of it and complete the assignment. The due dates for these assignments will be on the course schedule once students get finish student orientation and get access to my course. If there is something I need to know about your child, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to email me or call at the number below. Thank you for your cooperation. Sincerely,

Cree Aiken Cree.aiken@gavirtualschool.org 770-536-2394, Ext. 1400
