Description: The article is about flvs login. The passage is about how to create a Florida Virtual School account for homeschooling student. Students or parents can follow those steps to create Florida Virtual School account and start using the system for studying.
Today I am going to teach you how to get your home schoolers set up with a Florida Virtual School account. The first thing you’re going do is to visit our homepage at www.flvs.net. Once you are here,you can go ahead and find the signup link at the top of the page and click. This will open up a new window for you,on this window you’re going to see where it says welcome let’s get started.
If your student is going do homeschooling but has taken classes in the past as a Florida Virtual School student,they should not make a new account as a home schooler,they can go ahead and log in to their previous account and update their physical school information to home education.
But if they’ve never had a Florida Virtual School account and they’re brand-new,you can find the button on the left-hand side and click on new students start here. Once you are on this page,you’re going to click on I live in Florida and select the county that you live in.
When you choose a student type for your home school student,it’s going to be homeschool student,then you can click continue. You’ll be routed to the course catalog,here is every single class that we now offer at Florida Virtual School.
You can refine your search if you don’t want to look at everything and you can narrow it down for your specific students,for example,your child is a 6th grader and you’re interested in regular in advanced middle school classes,you can click on regular in advanced middle school classes and everything we have available will pop up for you.
I am going to go ahead and not refine my search of all of our classes listed. From my home school student I’m setting up today,I’m going to go ahead and have them choose create a photography,it’s a wonderful elective that we offer so I’m going to go ahead and select that. This happens to be a full credit elective course,my child has never taken creative photography,I would like to take both segments of the course for her,I’m going to click on second one and segment two.
Students who are starting a brand new class that’s a full credit are going to sign up for both segments at the same time,they’re not going to work on both segments at the same time,what will happen is that they will start in segment 1 of the course and upon completion of segment 1,they will be moved into segments to keep the same teacher at no downtime smooth transition.
If you also notice for this course it says materials required,you must have access to a digital camera,cell phone or cameras can not meet the requirement to take this course. That’s good to know if I was signing her up for a class and I looked at that and realized we don’t have a regular digital camera,she would be eligible to take this class unless we purchased one,I might change my mind in the class.
A lot of times the prerequisites for higher-level courses are listed,for example algebra one before algebra 2 and English one before English two etc. I get to choose the preferred start date,if you click on this little calendar icon here,a little calendar will pop up.
I want my child to start this course on the 28th,now sometimes our enrollment team will work very hard to make that be the first date,but it’s called preferred start date because sometimes we may all have a teacher available that exact day and it may take a few days to get a teacher depending on the time of year in the course. It’ll lead me to some survey questions about why I’d like my daughter to take this course.
For me I’m going to choose support for home education instruction and another question is how did I hear about Florida Virtual School,I am going to choose from parents and guardians that have raved about how wonderful Florida Virtual School is,because it is. I’m going to click on continue,now it takes me to the backpack,the backpack shows the courses I’ve selected,I can add more courses at this point,I can delete a course request if I change my mind about the class,I can continue.
I want my student to start off with one class and get her feet wet and see how this one is for her,I’m going to click the continue button. After I’ve picked the courses,I am going to create the account for her. I’m going to go ahead and make up some information,the name is Jane Doe,the email address is Jane Doe@gmail.com,I can show you a couple more pages and keep going through this. Let’s pick a random date of birth and a username,password,security questions,favorite food,we’ll say Jane’s favorite food is pizza and colour of Jane’s kitchen is going to be white.
Let’s sign up. It does not like my email address probably because I made it up,I’ll go ahead and put my email address in there because I know it’s accurate,I love our safeguards in there to make sure that people are giving us accurate email so we can communicate with them. I am going to do the sign up. Once you give them all the information for the new students sign up,the next page will come up.
The student profile pops up when it wants to make sure that all the information that you’ve provided is accurate,you can look through it at the top the personal information,we’ll choose a gender for this Jane Doe will be female. We’ll go ahead and pick the US and English is her primary language. She’s taking creative photography,it’s a high school class.
It does ask for Social Security numbers student number,if you know the Florida ID number or a district ID,if you don’t know this information that’s perfectly fine,you can leave it blank for now,we can always add it later on. If you want to add an address,I’m probably going to stop at this point because I don’t want to make this account because it’s not a real person.
At this point you’re going to add the address that’s related to the student and link to the student and the telephone numbers,for the telephone numbers you can add more than one,you can add even a fax number,a home number,a cell number or a work number.
You can put a cell in description,you can type in their mom’s number,student’s number,you can put the phone number and then it asks if you can get text messages at this number and you can say yes or no. You can add this phone number and then come back to add home number or student’s number or father’s number,you can add any contact information you’d like the teachers and the virtual school to have access to so that we can reach you.
Finally once you put in this information and you click next,you’re going to be taken to a page that is going to ask for the Guardian information. That’s where for mother,father,legal guardian,custodial parent put in the information so that we have a parent link to the student that has access to the account,we can communicate with for our monthly calls,you can have access to communicate with the teachers and check and monitor your student’s progress in their classes.
It’ll also email you a link to how to set up your own parent account. Once the account is created,you can log in and you can see your account. Once you have your Florida Virtual School account set up,you need to make sure that you reach out to the home Education office in your district to ensure that your child has been registered as a home schooler.
After you register some districts will electronically go into Florida Virtual School’s district account and verify the student is now homeschooled,so we know at Florida Virtual School they’re eligible to take classes. Other districts will send a letter to Florida Virtual School or provides you with a letter to get to us so that we can go ahead and sign your student up.
If any questions come up as you’re making these accounts,we have a wonderful help desk you can reach out to anytime,you can reach out to them at 1-8003741730 or you can also call us at area code 4075133587,our help center can help you create the account if you have questions,we will get you link up to a counselor if you’d like some more information about what courses are right for your student.
