BACK OFFICE BUSINESS: New Schools in Four States Partner with the Virtual High School (VHS)

Schools in Rhode Island, Texas, Massachusetts, and Alabama have joined more than 650 schools around the world to expand student opportunities using supportive, teacher-led online VHS courses. Schools expand their local course offerings by incorporating the VHS catalog into their program of studies. The VHS catalog consists of more than 200 unique online courses, including 23 AP offerings, innovative STEM programs, and a wide variety of unique electives, including computer science. Partnering with VHS enables schools to provide courses to students that would be unavailable otherwise. Students at participating schools can enroll in the VHS courses of their choice as long as the course has openings and the student meets course prerequisites. Schools distribute their VHS course enrollments to their students as they see fit. Some schools provide enrollment opportunities to their entire student body, and others limit enrollments to juniors or seniors or students who have a particular course need.
