Illinois Virtual School (IVS) is the State Board of Education’s (ISBE) statewide, supplemental online program serving Illinois students (grades 5-12) and educators with a range of quality online courses to enhance and expand learning opportunities.
ISBE’s funding offsets IVS’ total cost of operation. This funding has allowed IVS to provide a discounted tuition price point for schools and parents from public, private, and home-school institutions.
FY 16 funding for IVS has not been allocated from ISBE due to Illinois’ budget crisis. To ensure the program continues its operation for students and educators, the following IVS course fee increase will take effect April 1.
- Full Service online courses taught by IL-certified teachers will increase to $225.00/semester course enrollment.
- Credit Recovery online courses will increase to $85/semester course with 10-weeks of access.
