**Disclaimer: All information presented on this blog is based on our best understanding of current homeschool laws in the state of Florida at the time of each posting, and in particular the homeschool laws for Hillsborough County, where Class Source is located. However, we are not legal experts, and the information posted in this group does not constitute legal advice. Homeschool laws can vary by county and state. If you are uncertain of the homeschool regulations and requirements in your area, please verify using your local resources. The HSLDA website has a resource which allows you to look up homeschool laws by state, and is a good place to start: https://hslda.org/legal.**
This week's FAQ is:
Is Florida Virtual School the same thing as homeschooling?
No. Full-time FLVS students are considered public school students, not homeschoolers. However, some homeschoolers may make use of FLVS classes through their FLVS Flex program as part of their home-education program. (Homeschoolers can also qualify for enrollment in some on-campus public school classes, if desired.) While FLVS Flex can be a useful supplement for some home-educating families, FLVS is a tool at homeschoolers’ disposal, not a home-education program in and of itself.
