MyDistrict Virtual School is the name of the online learning option for K-12 students provided by the North East Florida Educational Consortium. K-5 students must meet state eligibility requirements and must be full time virtual students. Students in grades 6-12 may be full or part time, home education students, or private school students.
Section 1002.45, F.S., required each school district, beginning with the 2009-2010 school year, to provide eligible students the option to participate in a virtual instruction program. Since then, additional legislation and Florida Department of Education directives have increased the options, requirements and accountability of virtual instruction programs.
NEFEC provides virtual instruction program support as a service to its participating small school districts. In most instances:
- Students are compiled across district lines to form courses
- NEFEC selects and supervises the teacher
- NEFEC guides and helps administer the program
- The school district oversees the students and administers state/district testing
