Virtual Instruction Program

The Virtual Instruction Program offers fully online courses, taught by Chesapeake Public Schools teachers, to students enrolled in the school division.  Online courses require students to work independently, demonstrate excellent time management skills, provide their own computer and internet access at home, and be motivated to succeed.  Courses in the Virtual Instruction Program allow students greater flexibility with course schedules and meet a state requirement of having an online learning experience prior to graduating high school.  All online courses are asynchronous which means students can take the course anytime/anyplace they have a computer and Internet access. However, courses are not entirely self-paced and students must adhere to a schedule with assignments due at various times during the week. All Chesapeake Public Schools students are eligible to enroll in courses offered as part of the Virtual Instruction Program.

To take a course in the Virtual Instruction Program:

    • students must be officially enrolled in Chesapeake Public Schools.
    • students must have reliable computer and Internet access at home. A mobile device is not sufficient.
    • students must complete the application and submit it to their guidance counselor.
    • students must complete all necessary course prerequisites.
    • students must take the course as part of their normal course load.
    • students must complete all required Virginia Department of Education assessments at their zoned school.

NOTE: All courses are subject to sufficient enrollment and subject to change.
