Full report in PDF format

  • The Florida Virtual School has strengthened its accountability system and developed goals for school and student performance.  However, the school has not aligned the goals and accountability system with its mission statement or with priorities established by the Legislature. 
  • The school is generally attaining its mission of reaching underserved students, including students in rural school districts and students in high minority schools.
  • As the school continues to grow, it will be important to change its funding mechanism from a line item in the General Appropriations Act to either a funding formula as part of the Florida Education Finance Program or a performance-funding model.
