ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Students who wish to accelerate their learning or who wish to make up credits are encouraged to take courses from Florida Virtual High School. Florida Virtual High School is an internet-based high school funded by the Florida legislature. The courses offered are based on the Sunshine State Standards and provide Florida's students with an alternative way to earn credits for high school graduation. A major characteristic of this system is the expectation that students assume full responsibility for learning by locating, evaluating, and using a wide range of resources available in this information age. These courses are most suited to students who are self-motivated, committed, and fully matured independent learners. All courses taken must follow the Charlotte County High School Guidelines and be approved by the principal and guidance counselor.
Distance learning opportunities supplied through the Florida Virtual School as affiliated with Charlotte County Public Schools are not designed to replace the standard high school experience. These on-line courses are supplements to the regular program and are offered on a limited basis. Students whose general academic and behavioral profiles indicate that they could be successful are encouraged to attempt distance-learning opportunities.
