Online learning plays an important role in expanding educational opportunities for students. IVS courses are offered to students in grades 5-12 through an Internet-based learning platform. IVS partners with Illinois public and private schools to offer ILS-aligned courses led by Illinois licensed and qualified teachers. In turn, the local school awards the student credit for successful completion of an IVS course.
IVS provides students with:
- An opportunity to take courses not offered at the face-to-face school, such as Advanced Placement, foreign languages, and other enrichment opportunities;
- Credit recovery options to graduate on time; and
- Instruction that occurs anytime, anywhere, and any pace through teacher managed courses.
Credit is granted by the student’s school. The Illinois Virtual School does not grant credit or award diplomas. IVS provides schools and students with a Completion Certificate that includes a suggested final grade and percent. The local school determines the final grade that is added to the official transcript.
IVS meets all qualifications set forth for an online school provider in the Remote Education Act of 2009, which amended the Illinois School Code. IVS and the Remote Education Act
