Attendance at Polk Virtual School

News and Announcements

How Does Attendance Work At Polk Virtual School (PVS)?

PVS offers a true distance learning experience that does not require seat time in a traditional classroom. Periodically, standardized testing and academic interventions require students to attend face-to-face activities. Teachers may exercise the option of having students take face-to-face proctored assignments and exams to ensure fidelity.

Students are expected to actively participate in all courses on a weekly basis in order to maintain educational integrity. Students are considered truant (absent) if there is no participation in the online courses for more than one week without prior approval and will be reported as absent to the proper administration.
