Virtual School Celebrates 20 Year Anniversary

The 20-year anniversary of Florida Virtual School (FLVS) represents a time capsule for virtual education. When founded in 1997, FLVS consisted of six teachers, four personnel members, 77 enrollments, and six courses. Online education tools were still new for the high schoolers of 1997. That initial small group of faculty and staff served in multiple roles at once, often acting as teacher, community liaison, course developer, and even legislative developer.

Today, FLVS employs more than 1,400 Florida certified instructors who are provided with a variety of resources and professional development opportunities.
