Online Learning Option Still Available For Families: Florida Virtual School Flex

by Hailey Fitch | Sep 01, 2021

Families With Students in Grades Kindergarten Through 12 Can Enroll in FLVS Flex Year-Round, and Incorporate One or More Courses Depending on their Needs

While enrollment for many online learning options has closed around the state, families can still enroll in Florida Virtual School (FLVS) Flex for students in grades Kindergarten through 12. This option allows families to enroll year-round, work at their own pace, and incorporate one or more courses as part of their education plan for the upcoming school year, giving each family the flexibility to make the decision that works best for them.

“We want families to know that our team is here for them every step of the way as they evaluate their options for this school year,” said Jason Schultz, senior director of instruction for FLVS. “With more than 2,500 certified online teachers who work one-on-one with students to understand their needs, 190 comprehensive and engaging courses, 60 fun and exciting clubs, 50 student service professionals who address the social and emotional needs of students, and more, FLVS Flex is a great option for students who may not be ready to go back to in-person learning.”

If families decide to take all their courses with FLVS Flex, they will need to register as a homeschool student in their zoned school district. Families do not need to register as a homeschool student if they plan on only taking one or two courses with FLVS Flex to supplement learning at their traditional zoned school.

Last year, Florida Virtual School saw unprecedented growth as many families discovered online learning for the first time, and based on projected enrollment numbers, Florida Virtual School will continue to be a popular option for students this year.

Florida Virtual School offers full-time and part-time flexible options for grades Kindergarten through 12. Students have access to more than 190 courses – including core, elective/specials, Advanced Placement, and Career and Technical Education courses – all tuition-free for Florida residents and taught by state-certified teachers using a curriculum developed specifically for the online learning environment to facilitate student success.
