Is Online Learning for Me?
Online courses can provide opportunities for students to attend classes anytime from anywhere; however, studies show that often students are unprepared for the challenges inherent with this style of delivery.  For more information, please click HERE.

Registering for an iFlagler Course: Once the virtual courses are selected and reviewed by the counselor, students will need to create an account and register for the selected iFlagler course(s) on the FLVS website.  Click here for step by step instructions. After the account is created the counselor will approve the course request online.

Grade Book:
Every graded assessment is recorded in the student’s personal grade book, which is available to ALL parents through a guardian account. Parents are required to register for that account. Routinely monitoring grades allows you to see student progress over time. All graded assignments and current overall grade average are available for viewing.

Pace Chart:
All iFlagler/FLVS courses have a PACE CHART embedded in them. This allows students to know exactly what is expected to be submitted on a weekly basis, whether they choose a traditional, extended or accelerated pace. Teachers assist students in modifying the chart to reflect their chosen pace. There is also an individualized pace chart to follow.

Parent/Guardian Account:
FLVS and iFlagler value parents as partners. By monitoring progress, the Parent/Guardian Account allows parents to have a hands-on approach with their student’s academic life at iFlagler.

Applying for a Parent/Guardian Account:
Students must first be approved for admissions at iFlagler. The student will then have to create a virtual account on the FLVS website. You will need the student's username/ password from their virtual account to create the Parent/Guardian Account.

Student Code of Conduct:
Internet access is required for all iFlagler students, but access must be used in a responsible, safe, efficient, ethical, and legal manner. With expanded access to electronic information, availability of inappropriate material is not uncommon. Some sites contain illegal, defamatory, inaccurate, or offensive information. Although it is impossible to control such misuses, we believe that with responsible use, the benefits of the Internet as an educational tool outweigh the negatives. We especially appreciate partnering with parents to teach responsible Internet use.

Please review the following netiquette rules and iFlagler expectations carefully:

  • Students are responsible for good behavior on the iFlagler network, just as they are in a traditional school building. Always use a computer in a way that shows consideration and respect. It is illegal to use obscene, profane, threatening, or disrespectful language. (f.s. 847.001 Obscene Literature; Profanity).
  • We take integrity and authenticity of student work very seriously. Do not cut, copy, or plagiarize Internet content or the work of your online classmates. iFlagler instructors utilize technologies to check for authenticity. Copying, knowingly allowing others to copy from you, and/or misusing Internet content could result in removal from our courses and/or a failing grade.
  • Security is a high priority, especially when the system involves many users. If you can identify a security problem in the school's computers, network, or Internet connection, notify a system administrator.
  • It is illegal to create harmful computer viruses. (f.s. 815 Computer-Related Crimes).
  • Email is not private. Never say anything via email that you wouldn't mind seeing on the school bulletin board or in the local newspaper.
  • Beware of emails from anyone, particularly adults you don’t know, asking for personal information, attempting to arrange meetings, or engaging in personal contact. Alert your teacher about any message you receive that is inappropriate or makes you feel uncomfortable.
  • Email with your online classmates should be course-related. It is prohibited to send unsolicited email to your online classmates.
  • Email addresses that use profanity or may be construed as offensive shall not be permitted for iFlagler correspondence. iFlagler administration reserves the right to determine if student email addresses are inappropriate. When necessary, students will be asked to use an alternative email address or be refused for participation in iFlagler courses.
  • Protect your password. Keep it secret from anyone except your parents.
  • iFlagler assumes no responsibility for any phone charges, line costs or usage fees for connectivity to the Internet.

Administrators will cooperate fully with local, state, or federal officials in any investigation related to any illegal activities conducted through Internet access. In the event there is a claim that you have violated this policy, you will be provided with notice of the suspected violation and have an opportunity to present an explanation. Any violations may result in removal from course(s), as well as other disciplinary or legal action.

Teachers:
iFlagler courses are taught by highly qualified, certified instructors—experts in their subject matters. Teachers and students interact regularly through email, voice mail, texting, and telephone conversations. Students are encouraged to contact the teacher when there is a need of any kind. Teachers speak via telephone with students and their parents at least once per month.

Work Load Expectation:
Each student is required to submit a specific amount of work each week to maintain the appropriate pace decided on by the course and the teacher The number of required weekly submissions depends on the course taken. Failure to maintain pace results in warnings, reduced grades and, if unheeded, withdrawal from the course.
