|HB 1215, which was passed by the General Assembly during the 2012 Session and has been signed by the Governor, amends the Code of Virginia to require the Board of Education to promulgate regulations establishing standards for the accreditation of public virtual schools that enroll students full-time. This regulatory action addresses this legislation by amending existing regulations to address the accreditation of public virtual schools operating under the authority of the local school boards. The intent of this legislation is to address situations where a student could be enrolled in a public school and take all coursework virtually, rather than in a traditional “brick and mortar” environment.
|Only affects this chapter.
