KVHS Quick Info:
- The Kentucky Virtual High School is an educational service delivering high school courses and online learning opportunity to Kentuckians through the Internet. The KVHS is managed by the Kentucky Department of Education and is available statewide. Credit earned for courses taken through KVHS is granted by the student's local high school.
- Currently, most KVHS students work on school computers. However, access to a home computer or a computer in a public library will provide the student with additional study time.
- Many decisions about KVHS are made at the local district level. For example, Kentucky public schools are not required to participate in, or provide students to, KVHS. The local school district also has the authority to approve or deny a student's request to participate in a KVHS course.
- Schools provide an involved school facilitator that the KVHS teacher can contact by email or phone if problems occur.
Interested persons should submit a current vita or resume, a copy of the secondary certification and a one-page biography. The biography should describe AP teaching experience, training received pertaining to Advanced Placement, and experience with students and technology in the learning environment.
