Florida Virtual School (FLVS) is an established leader in developing and providing virtual K-12 education solutions to students all over Florida, the U.S. and the world. A nationally recognized e-Learning model and recipient of numerous awards, FLVS was founded in 1997 .
Our commitment is to deliver high quality education that provides the skills and knowledge students need for success in the 21st century.
We have built our school on these beliefs:
- Each student is unique, so learning should be personalized, dynamic, flexible and engaging.
- Studies should be integrated rather than isolated.
- Students, parents, community members, and schools share responsibility for learning.
- Students should have choices in how they learn and how they present what they know.
- Students should be provided guidance with school and career planning.
- Assessments should provide insights not only of student progress but also of instruction and curriculum.
- Language Arts
- Social Studies
- World Languages
- Advanced Placement
- Credit Recovery
FLVS Global School is open to all students in grades 6-12. All students are welcome! We have advanced courses, core courses, electives, and credit recovery. We serve both part time and full time students.
Student-Teacher Contact Requirements
FLVS courses are designed to take a semester (or 18 weeks) per 0.5 credit. Depending on the instructional model, students can work faster or take more time in the courses. All FLVS courses come with individual pace planners so teachers and students can work together to determine the best pace for each student. There are required discussion-based assessments in all courses, monthly parent/student/teacher progress contact, and collaboration requirements. However, our entire program is run asynchronously with oppportunities to attend live lessons and synchronous sessions. Teachers are available to students seven days a week for real time calls, chats, texts, or webinars. There is a requirement for students to submit assignments every week unless other arrangements have been made with their instructor.
FLVS Global School uses the Educator learning management system. Students will access their courseware, do their work, communicate with teachers via email, and monitor their grades via Educator.
We also use a student information system called Virtual School Administrator (VSA). This system tracks data, phone calls, emails, grades, and student information. When students log in to their courses, VSA is the launching point into Educator, the LMS. Outside school administrators and parents also can use VSA to monitor student progress.
