ORLANDO, Florida. – Florida virtual school registration for elementary and middle school students was scheduled to end on Friday, but officials said they will extend the registration period until mid-August to give families more time to develop their education plan for the 2021-2022 school year.
The deadline for grades ninth through twelfth still ends on Friday, but students in kindergarten through eighth grade now have until August 13 to register, according to a news release.

Across Florida, school districts offered three learning options last year due to the coronavirus pandemic: Florida Virtual School, hybrid, and in-person. However, all Central Florida schools have removed blended learning that included online classes aligned with a student’s regular class schedule. Many have also removed the requirement for students and staff to mask up, making face coverings optional.
During the 2021-22 school year enrollment, FLVS experienced unprecedented enrollment and continues to exceed pre-pandemic levels, according to a news release.
Students and parents can visit flvs.net to enroll full-time. FLVS also offers online courses for non-full-time online students, known as FLVS Flex. Students residing outside of Florida can also enroll in FLVS Global School at flvsglobal.net.
