Illinois Virtual School – Fall Planning

Congratulations on your successes in the
2015-2016 school year!
 

Our IVS administrative team and instructors look forward to working with you and your students next year.

The FY 2017 IVS School Partner Information and Contact Designation Form is now online and available on the IVS webpage.  As your school begins planning for the Fall, utilize this document to update your local school contacts maintained in the IVS system.  This includes the local school contact to approve students’ course requests and receive student progress information.

IVS Updates for the 2016-2017 school year:

The lack of any funding to support IVS operations during the 2015-2016 school years requires our program to return to the original course fee structure in place from 2009-2014.   Effective August 2016, the course fee for a full service course will return to $250/semester course.  The course fee for credit recovery courses will be $90/semester course.

Beginning with the Fall 2016 terms, IVS is no longer loaning and shipping AP course textbooks.  The master list of materials on the IVS websiteprovides textbook and materials information for all courses to ensure students are prepared to learn.

To be eligible for an extension in a full service course, a student must have completed at least 50% of the course. This change becomes effective in August with the summer terms.  Extension details can be found on the IVS website. IVS teachers monitor student progress and send out progress reports, but it is good practice for schools to monitor student activity too, especially during the grace period when students can be dropped at no penalty.

If your school is planning to implement an IVS course(s) for a full class (i.e., students scheduled together taking the same course) please contact Cindy Hamblin at chamblin@ilvirtual.org to schedule a meeting to review the implementation plans.

Enjoy your summer!
