Want to enroll your student in Duval Virtual? You’ll have one more chance this week

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Parents and guardians of Duval County students will get another opportunity to enroll in Duval Virtual Instruction Academy (DVIA) for the 2021/2022 school year.

On Thursday, August 19, and Friday, August 20, enrollment will reopen online in the Parent FOCUS Account.

The enrollment form will be located under the “Forms” folder.

“We know this has been a challenging time for many of our families as they try to determine the best option for their children amid the pandemic,” said DVIA Principal Mark Ertel.

“Transitioning families from brick-and-mortar to our virtual environment is a complex process, and we will continue to work hard to support our families and help students have a great launch into online learning as quickly as possible,” Ertel said.

DVIA is a Kindergarten through 12th-grade alternative to in-classroom learning.

According to Duval County Public Schools, as of August 17, there were 2,823 students enrolled in DVIA.

DVIA is the only public virtual school option offered by DCPS. This means that our FULL-TIME students will:

  • receive instruction from state-certified instructors
  • follow the DCPS calendar
  • have limited access to face-to-face instruction at the “Live Campus”
  • have access to a school counselor
  • receive ESE services (as appropriate)
  • have the option to attend activities and athletics at their zoned physical schools
  • receive report cards
  • take accredited courses
  • attend annual graduation ceremony (seniors)
