Full-time virtual education for elementary students (K-5) is provided through our district partnership with K12-a Stride Company and Edgenuity Virtual Academy. Prior to enrolling, careful consideration must be given to the choice of virtual education for each child and family.
Full-time virtual school students participate in all Florida State Assessments (FSA) and local assessments. State assessments must be taken in person on specified dates.

Miami Dade Option
Palm Beach and Miami Dade School Districts have a reciprocity agreement which provides an option for parents in both districts. If you are interested in this option and are a resident of Palm Beach County, please call (561) 790-9820 for more information.
Accelerated Option for Elementary Students to take 6th Grade Math
As a component of our Virtual Learning Acceleration Options in Public Education, eligible students requiring math acceleration to the middle school level can elect to receive instruction online through Palm Beach Virtual School Franchise, while attending their brick and mortar school.
The Acceleration Project provides a teacher who monitors the student's progress, provides feedback on performance, and communicates with parents regarding the student's work.
The child's school of enrollment must approve all acceleration course requests. Please contact your current school counselor for more information.
