Dropping a Course
The Katy ISD Virtual School follows the same guidelines for dropping a course during the school year as published in the Course Catalog.
To drop a course, the parent or guardian should email Katy Virtual School.
Prior to requesting a refund, students must be dropped from the course. Refunds are issued in the original form of payment and processed by the District Business Office. Consult the Katy Virtual School calendar for the last date to drop with a refund. During the fall and spring, courses dropped after the 4th week of the six weeks will be used in determining UIL and extracurricular eligibility. For fall and spring courses, students may not drop an elective course after the end of the second six weeks.
Students are expected to provide their own technology, including a computer, Internet access, Google Chrome, a headset with microphone and a webcam. Most of the course can be completed on a mobile device, but exams must be completed on a desktop or laptop computer. Should students have difficulty meeting this requirement, complete the District Device Request Form.
