Course Description and Philosophy:

Virtual Enterprise is a one to two year business course. Students must either have taken the first year course or have successfully completed Advanced Computer Applications. The exception to this requirement is only by instructor approval. Virtual Enterprise is a very fast paced class. It requires students to be self-disciplined, able to work alone and in teams with little supervision and have very high work ethics. Students are considered employees and select employees will be required to present in Virtual Enterprise competitions.

Company Policies:

Attendance and Participation:

One of the most important workplace ethics is attendance. As a Virtual Enterprise employee you are expected to arrive at work on time, prepared to work, and to give 100% for the time you are at work. Tardies and unexcused absences are not tolerated in Virtual Enterprise.


Mutual respect for colleagues and consultants is expected.

Any other policies as set by the employees of this company including those related to attendance, missed work, etc.


Grades will be composed of

participation including attendance, participation in meetings, workshops, special events and personal development

VE personal portfolio and projects

assessments including unit and employee evaluations

Grades are based on points that are earned through assignments and participation. The grade scale is as follows:

90 – 100% = A

80 – 89% = B

70 – 79% = C

60 – 69% = D

0 – 59% = F

Parent Involvement:

Parents are always welcome in my classroom. Also, parents may be needed to chaperone during field trips.

Office Hours:

By appointment only
