Are virtual schools required to have a school improvement plan (SIP)?

Yes, some virtual school types are required to develop and submit a SIP pursuant to section 1001.42, Florida Statutes (F.S.). Florida Virtual School (FLVS) Full-Time K-8 and FLVS Full-Time 9-12 as well as FLVS district franchises and full-time district virtual instruction programs are required to have a SIP. Virtual instruction programs managed by an approved provider, as described in section 1002.45 F.S., are only required to submit a SIP if the school has received a grade of D or F in the most recent grades release.
