Per Kansas Statute 72-3712, a virtual school or program is:
offered for credit;
uses distance learning technologies which predominately use internet-based methods to deliver instruction;
involves instruction that occurs asynchronously with the teacher and pupil in separate locations;
requires the pupil to make academic progress toward the next grade level and matriculation from kindergarten through high school graduation;
requires the pupil to demonstrate competence in subject matter for each class or subject in which the pupil is enrolled as part of the virtual school; and
requires age-appropriate pupils to complete state assessment tests.
If you are interested in enrolling in a virtual school or program, you are encouraged to first contact your resident school district to see if one is offered. If there are no options within your district, or you wish to explore options outside of your district, you should search the Virtual School and Program Directory to find a school or program that best fits your needs. While distance is not an issue because it is virtual, you should take into consideration required proctoring for state assessments and final exams, field trip and enrichment opportunities, and onsite tutoring and support services when selecting a virtual school or program.
