Free and Easy Course Access- One of the main merits of a virtual school is removing barriers for students to take classes. The FLVS is a huge success in this sense because it makes Advanced Placement courses available to all Florida students. The authors found that about 1,300 Advanced Placement courses were taken virtually by students who attended brick and mortar schools where the classes were not available.
Lower Costs- Per-pupil funding was about 10 percent lower for the FLVS. This doesn’t include numerous fixed costs faced by districts.
School Attendance- Some had worried that virtual schools would encourage absenteeism. However, students who attended the FLVS part-time were not more likely to miss school.
