Gadsden County’s Virtual Instruction Program (GC-VIP) is open to all eligible students within the district. GC-VIP is an innovative educational experience that takes place in an interactive learning environment created through technology. The Gadsden County Public School (GCPS) district remains steadfast to a commitment of excellence. All grades earned through participation in GC-VIPwill be assigned by the Virtual School instructors and not the local teachers.

It is very important for parents and students to have ongoing dialogue with the Virtual School instructors to ensure there is no miscommunication about your child's academic performance while participating in these online programs.
