Florida Virtual School Turns 25!

By on August 10th, 2022

This year is the 25th anniversary of Florida Virtual School! It seems like just yesterday since we launched in 1997 as Florida’s first internet-based, public high school. Since then, we have become a fully accredited statewide public school district and served more than 234,000 students last year alone. 

To celebrate our silver birthday, we asked FLVS teachers and staff a few questions to get their insight on how online learning has changed throughout the years. Spoiler alert: it’s changed A LOT!

Online Learning in 2021 and Beyond: Insights from FLVS Parents

By on May 3rd, 2021

Last year, we saw one of society’s most significant cultural shifts as people transitioned from in-person birthday parties to Zoom parties, everyday outings to at-home alternatives, and traditional classrooms to online learning. The COVID-19 pandemic changed everything about how people worked, lived, and learned.   

While the transition to a stay-at-home lifestyle and online learning presented challenges, it also provided many families with a new sense of safety and flexibility. And it’s not surprising that with the end of the 2020-21 school year approaching (the first full year of virtual learning for many), parents have a new take on online learning and how it fits into their families’ post-pandemic lives.

While the true origin of Valentine’s Day is not clear, we do know that sometime during the Middle Ages, the day became widely recognized as a celebration of love. In fact, the oldest known Valentine still in existence is a poem penned in 1415 by a French duke. Now, more than 600 years later, we continue to share warm fuzzies and heart-filled emojis every February. 

This year may look different as we find creative ways to share the love, but we are thrilled to pass along heartfelt sentiments from our FLVS families and staff who recreate those feelings of warmth online!
