New Innovative E-Learning Option Now Available!
The District has created a “new” model within each of the current instructional options. This new model is called the Innovative E-Learning Model.
Charlotte Virtual Students:
The first re-election window is dedicated to presently enrolled Charlotte Virtual School students only. This window opens on September 17th and closes on September 23rd. Brick-and-Mortar students may reelect into this new E-Learning option beginning October 12th and ending on October 16th. Parents or Guardians wishing to declare their intent to enroll their children into this new E-Learning option are required to access and complete a short survey by logging into your child’s Classlink account.
Families and Students on Access Point Instruction and ESE PreK Program:
CCPS has created an instructional environment that is geared to learners who require a modified curriculum and more ESE related support than what Charlotte Virtual School can provide. If your student is working toward Access Points and is currently enrolled at CVS or at a Brick and Mortar School, you have the opportunity to enroll in the new E-Learning model. Your reelection window opens on September 17th and closes on September 23rd. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please visit the Charlotte County Public School’s ESE Webpage located on our district website. Parents or Guardians wishing to declare their intent to enroll their children into this new E-Learning option are required to complete the short survey on the ESE Webpage Titled, “ESE Innovative Learning Re-Election Form”, by the September 23rd deadline.
Brick-and-Mortar students may reelect into this new E-Learning option beginning October 12th and ending on October 16th.
Brick and Mortar, traditionally known as “face-to-face” learning, is best defined as teaching and learning that occurs on the school campus. This instructional model brings students back to a regular elementary and regular secondary student schedule of classes. Students will attend school at the school’s campus, every day, five days a week. For more information on Health, Safety, and Operational Protocols click here.
Charlotte Virtual School (CVS) full-time is a franchise of Florida Virtual School (FLVS) and serves as Charlotte County’s virtual instruction program. CVS serves K-12 Charlotte County students, who are registered as public school students and take part in statewide, standardized assessments and district testing.
- CVS has successfully been in operation since 2010.
- Choosing your local virtual school keeps your tax dollars in Charlotte County.
- CVS courses are taught by highly qualified, experienced teachers employed by Charlotte County Public Schools.
- Teachers are available Monday to Friday from 8 am to 8 pm.
- CVS offers the availability of face-to-face instruction, guidance and administration, which is a key component of a truly student-centered learning environment.
- CVS courses use a rigorous, standards-based curriculum that prepares students for success in state and local assessments.
- CVS is NOT a credit recovery program, nor is it an E-Learning program similar to Edgenuity.
- CVS curriculum is written for students at or above grade level in reading.
- CVS students have the opportunity to earn a standard diploma issued by Charlotte County Public Schools.
- CVS students are given the same opportunities as public school students to participate in extracurricular activities at their zoned school.

Note: What if my child has an IEP (Individual Education Plan) or Section 504 plan? CVS teachers are aware of students’ unique needs and accommodations set forth in their IEP or Section 504 plan. All students at CVS have access to many accommodations that naturally occur in the virtual setting. In addition, CVS may be able to provide additional accommodations per a student’s IEP or Section 504 Plan, if they are applicable to the online educational environment. ESE students applying for full-time enrollment with CVS are essentially changing the delivery method of their instruction. As a result, an IEP review has to be conducted at the zoned school before a student can be permanently enrolled with CVS. CVS is a “school of choice” and therefore does not offer all of the services that may be available at other schools.
Home Education is a parent-directed education alternative, which allows the freedom to explore and learn at the pace of the individual student. The parent who assumes the responsibility of educating their child at home also assumes the responsibility for providing the curriculum, educational materials and evaluations necessary to determine student progress. Charlotte County Public Schools does NOT supply technology, texts, curriculum guides or educational standards for the home education student. Home education students are given the same opportunities as public school students to participate in extracurricular activities at their zoned school. There is no diploma issued by the public school system in Florida for the completion of a home education program. For more information on Home Education click here.
