State Superintendent Approves 13 Virtual-School Programs.

Virginia Superintendent of Public Instruction Patricia I. Wright has approved 13 virtual-school programs to provide instruction to students in multiple school divisions as part of Governor Bob McDonnell’s effort to expand access to online learning while ensuring quality and alignment with state academic standards.

The virtual schools will offer instruction aligned with the commonwealth’s Standards of Learning (SOL) and delivered by teachers fully licensed by the Virginia Board of Education. The approved “multidivision online providers” include full-time virtual schools, programs offering supplemental instruction, and blended-instruction programs in which students have a trained, on-site mentor in addition to an online teacher.
