Exciting News: Announcing Our New Website & More

From yesterday’s inbox…

 

 

 

 

Dear Michael,

 

Have you seen the new and improved FLVS.net?

This week, you may have noticed a new look to the Florida Virtual School website – including an updated logo, simplified navigation, and revised content that outlines everything FLVS has to offer. One exciting new feature is a personalized tool on our Options page where you can browse all of our programs and find the one that’s right for you. Whether you, your student, or a friend wants to enroll with FLVS, this tool will help you explore everything that FLVS has to offer.

Along with these changes, you’ll also notice a new name for our flexible course offerings: FLVS Flex. In the past, we referred to our option for students to take one or more FLVS courses on a flexible basis as “FLVS Part Time.” The new name reflects the fact that each and every one of our students follows their own unique path to personalized learning – whether they’re an elementary student taking flexible elementary subjects or an older student enrolled in one or more of our 150+ courses for middle and high school. Learn more about FLVS Flex here.

FLVS HOPE Course Video Tour

Also from Tuesday’s inbox…

The Virtual Voice has posted a new item, ‘FLVS HOPE Course Video Tour’

Thinking about getting your Physical Education credits online at FLVS this
year?
Perhaps you have some questions…like how in the world does online P.E. even
work? It’s a great question – and we’ll be glad to answer it!

The answer is, in fact, pretty simple. With the FLVS HOPE course (short for
Health Opportunities through Physical Education), students get to enjoy all the
good stuff about health and P.E. on their own time and schedule.

HOPE is taught by certified instructors who help students work at their own pace
on the health and fitness goals that they choose. In the course, students learn
about flexibility, cardio, strength training, nutrition, wellness and more.
