Florida Unschoolers is affiliated with FLVS (www.flvs.net) which means your child may use the FLVS Flex option.

Under the FLVS Flex option, students may choose one course to supplement their other learning or to learn more about something they are interested in or enough courses to create a complete curriculum.

Many Florida Unschoolers students have happily used the FLVS Flex option over the years but it is a choice, not a requirement.

If your child is interested in using this option, you will need to go to the website and set up an account with him. You would need to select private school (not homeschool), Martin County (that’s where I am), Florida Unschoolers and Nance Confer as Guidance Counselor. Choose a student ID number you will remember if the FLVS system asks you for one. You request a course and it shows up on my FLVS page. I verify enrollment and that is the end of my involvement. After that, you will hear directly from FLVS.

Your child will be assigned to a class and the teacher will contact you. There will be frequent, regular contacts with the FLVS teacher. While there is no FSA or other standardized testing required of FLVS Flex students, there will be tests and quizzes and deadlines appropriate to each class.

It is a good idea to start with one course while you and your child get used to the way FLVS works. Available courses are listed here: https://www.flvs.net/flex/courses

Taking courses through FLVS does not result in a public school diploma unless you are a public school student enrolled with FLVS-Full Time, in which case all the public school standardized testing and curriculum requirements would apply.

Note: You may see an option to select "Florida Virtual School" or "Mosaic Digital Academy" when you first set up your account. You may choose either option but there may be a smaller selection under the Mosaic choice.

Note: There is a FLVS Flex Elementary option and that is scheduled to become more flexible starting in August 2018. There is more information on that here:  https://www.flvs.net/flex/elementary#signup
