Counselor Handbook

Note: The Counselor Handbook for the 2022–2023 academic year is currently in development. The handbook included on this page applies to the 2021–2022 academic year.

The Counselor Handbook provides quick access to answers for many of the questions counselors may have about Virtual Virginia policies, procedures, and specific programs and courses. We ask that school counselors review the handbook and keep a copy for reference as the year progresses.

Handbook contents include:

  • Information about helpful student support services
  • Program and course policies and procedures
  • An outline of local school and division responsibilities

Note: The Student & Parent/Guardian Participation Agreements form is included in the handbook. Each VVA student and parent/guardian is required to sign the form, and the counselor is required to keep the signed form on file. Download and print the form here (PDF).
