Keeping Virtual School Students Connected
Even in virtual school, FLVS Full Time students are connected to a community. They meet regularly in virtual classroom sessions and have opportunities to share ideas, compare experiences, and have fun learning together. Students are always able to choose the level of social interaction they’re comfortable with—whether in a FLVS Full Time online club or in their own community.
FLVS Full Time offers many ways for virtual school students to meet and learn through field trips, online school clubs, talent networks, and special school events. These socialization opportunities give students a chance to explore the world around them and form friendships with other students. They also help students gain social confidence, learn teamwork, and develop leadership and communication skills. And, they’re just plain fun!
Allowing Flexibility for Extracurriculars
Many students attending FLVS Full Time are busy with activities in their local communities. The flexibility of the program allows students to take advantage of more extracurricular activities. We encourage every student to find and explore interests outside of the classroom that also help build confidence and character.
Working with Families
Families are a crucial part of a virtual student’s educational experience. We recognize that the same routine does not work for every student and family. That’s why FLVS Full Time gives you the freedom to design a schedule that includes volunteer work, sports, performing arts, and other pursuits.
Parents, in particular, perform a very important role, keeping the student on track and regularly communicating with teachers.
Families can connect with teachers, administrators, and other parents both online and in person through:
- Social events
- Online Kindergarten–5 parent resource sessions
- Secure message boards where parents can post questions, tips, and resources for helping students succeed
- FLVS Full Time Club ORANGE, a network of grades Kindergarten–5 parents who are highly involved in the FLVS Full Time community
Participating in the Virtual Learning Community at Large
At FLVS Full Time, we also want students to understand that they’re a part of a broader virtual learning community. So, with help from parents and school staff, we arrange volunteer activities and participation in other community events.
