In our middle school Hillsborough Virtual School (HVS) program, the students are served by individual teachers for each class online. The entire curriculum is online, so there are no textbooks or materials sent home. Parents serve in a supervisory roll, watching a student's progress through a guardian account.
Students log in, receive curriculum, and do assignments, quizzes, and tests online. They have full access to highly-certified teachers for each subject, who they can talk to via email, phone, instant message, or virtual classroom.
