Requirements for Students with Disabilities

  • Students with disabilities are required to meet the state and school admission criteria in order to be accepted into FLVS Full Time, just as their non-disabled peers.
  • Current Individual Education Plans (IEP) of student applicants who meet the school’s entrance criteria will be reviewed on an individual basis in order to determine whether or not full time online education is the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) and therefore an appropriate option for school choice.
  • All necessary Exceptional Student Education (ESE) services and related services noted on a student’s IEP (or 504 Plan) must be able to be delivered in an online manner and must be readily available at FLVS for a student’s enrollment to be accepted in FLVS Full Time as the LRE.
  • While FLVS Full Time allows for flexibility in the location that students may access their curriculum and coursework, all students that have an IEP (or 504 Plan) that indicates the need for any type of therapy must be present in Florida to receive the necessary teletherapy services by a certified provider online.
  • If comparable services are not available or appropriate in a full time online environment, or if FLVS Full Time has concerns that a full time online setting may not be the LRE for the student, or if the student will not be present in Florida regularly, then other educational options will be discussed during the application process.
  • Please view the FLVS Full Time handbook section on ESE and Section 504 for more information on students with disabilities.
