Parent and Student Handbook
The Parent and Student Handbook is a one-stop shop for finding our policies, waivers, forms, available student services, graduation info and more.

Tech & Environment

Setting Up a Helpful Study Space
Having a designated study space will help your student focus and get more out of their classes.

Tech Needs
As an online school, your student will need access to a reliable computer, a webcam, and microphone.

Zoom Etiquette
We ask all students to follow a few Zoom etiquette guidelines. This allows us to hold online classes where students can connect with peers authentically.

SIS Training

Student Performance Data
Through SIS, you can keep tabs on your student’s grades and pacing, and see when they last accessed Canvas.

Messaging in SIS
Log into SIS to send messages directly to your student’s mentors or another member of the Williamsburg team.

Registering for Classes
Once your student’s enrollment application is approved, you can register for fall and winter classes through SIS.

Ordering Books & Supplies
Parents are responsible for purchasing their student’s books and supplies, but we cover the cost of all required items.

Submitting Assignments
All assignments will be submitted through Canvas, our Learning Management System.

Canvas Observer Account
