Monitoring of academic progress by an adult is essential for student success. The adult identified in this section will be considered your student's Learning Coach. The Learning Coach will need to have basic knowledge of technology to monitor the student's weekly submissions and academic progress and assist the student with any technology issues that occur at the student level, such as printer issues, setting up computer files, downloading/uploading documents, answering/replying to emails, etc.

Testing Requirement

Required State Testing

Students in the HVS fulltime program are public school students and must take all state tests. Parents are responsible for providing transportation to the HVS office located at DW Waters Career Center for multiple days of testing. Please note if the fulltime student does not participate in state mandated testing, he or she is at risk of being withdrawn from HVS.

Student Responsibility

HVS Students should plan to commit at least 5 hours per week per class (30-35 hours per week). It is critical for students to maintain the pace set by their HVS teacher and to turn in work for every class each week. Also, students must maintain contact with their teachers. A student that is not reading and/or responding to emails, returning phone calls, and maintaining pace is considered truant and may receive a truancy referral. The Academic Integrity Policy forbids plagiarism. Violating this policy may result in a student's removal from virtual school.

Parent Responsibility

Parents must monitor student progress and maintain communication with teachers. If an address, email, or phone number changes, parents must notify the main HVS office to update, as well as update any online profiles.

Optional: Attach / Upload Files
You may attach up to six files. Accepted formats: doc, docx, pdf, jpg, jpeg
Alternative method: Email your files to us after you apply. Email to: Hillsborough.Virtual@sdhc.k12.fl.us. BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR NAME and the Student's Name on all documents/emails.
