Pasco eSchool Registration Now Open
As part of an effort to expand the broad range of high quality educational choices available to students and their families, the District School Board of Pasco County is excited to announce the opening of Pasco eSchool. Pasco eSchool is the District’s first full-time virtual instruction program. Students will enjoy the flexibility of pursuing their individual education goals in a venue of their choice and the convenience of completing their coursework within their own schedule.
Maintaining its commitment to academic excellence, the District has safeguards in place to ensure that Pasco eSchool provides a challenging learning environment for all students. A franchise of the Florida Virtual School, Pasco eSchool provides students with access to award-winning curriculum delivered by local, highly qualified teachers.
This unique opportunity is designed to provide a comprehensive, student-centered approach to learning. Strong partnerships with parents are a key component of the program. Offering personal attention and maximum flexibility in this virtual setting, parents, teachers and administration will work together so that innovation and creativity are fostered, while meeting the individual needs of students. Students enrolling in the Pasco eSchool will receive assistance with course selection, academic planning, and career counseling. Optional field trips are also available to all students. Complete with its own administrator, Pasco eSchool will provide the support necessary for student success.
Eligibility requirements are as follows:
• Virtual school services in a full-time program are available to Kindergarten-5th grade students who were enrolled in public or approved virtual schools during the 2008-2009 school year. Families will be able to select the Florida Virtual Academy (K12) or the Florida Virtual School’s Connections Academy as a provider.
• Virtual school courses in grades 6-12, in either a full or part-time program, are available to all Pasco County residents in grades 6-12, including public, private, charter, home education and students new to Pasco County.
