The Illinois Virtual High School is being planned as an educational service managed by the Illinois State Board of Education to expand student access to challenging high school curricula aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards. Through the IVHS, Illinois school districts, non-publics and parents of home schooled students can provide students with access to a wider range of course offerings, with the opportunity to develop their capacities as independent learners, and with increased time and opportunity to achieve because learning on-line is neither time nor place dependent.
