Charter School Closure Update

Virtual School Students
Posted on 08/15/2019

IVS-IVPA Students, Parents, & Guardians,

We have been working with the Department of Education and the State Board of Education in our attempt to resolve issues you are experiencing with IVS-IVPA regarding grading, testing, transcripts, and diplomas. 

In the meantime, IF YOU HAVE NOT ENROLLED IN ANOTHER SCHOOL, please do so ASAP. We expect both virtual schools to officially close on September 30, but as you have experienced, they have both been largely non-functional since mid-July.

OPTIONS:

  1. Enroll in your home district public school. Your local public school is required to enroll you, whether or not you have transcripts. The Indiana Department of Education has advised public schools that your transcripts may not be available right away. 
  2. Enroll in another charter school. Charter schools are also public schools and have very similar enrollment requirements. They may deny enrollment but only if they are at capacity. The Indiana Department of Education has advised charter schools that your transcripts may not be available right away. 
  3. Enroll in a private or parochial school. These are not public schools and do charge tuition but are a valid option to continue your educational career.
  4. Enroll in homeschool. While this option is available, it does require a robust knowledge of the grade level content and a commitment to spend 5-6 hours each day instructing and assisting your child. More information may be found here: https://www.doe.in.gov/school-improvement/home-school
  5. Enroll in a HSE (formerly GED) program. If you are 18 or older, Indiana Adult Education programs can provide math, reading, and writing instruction free of charge to help you acquire the skills needed to earn a high school equivalency diploma, go to college, or enter an entry-level occupational certification program. You can even earn a high school equivalency diploma and an occupational certificate at the same time through the WorkINdiana program. Email AdultEd@dwd.in.gov or call 1-866-220-6675 for all questions.

You may continue to work on your classes for as long as you have access even after you transfer to a new school. We are all working toward getting your classes graded and finalized so that you will get credit for your work and issued correct transcripts.

Please inform us of the option you have chosen.
