Illinois Virtual School has released its annual report, IVS Now! for fiscal year 2017

The IVS Now! annual report highlights courses available, course enrollment and trend data, statewide school partnerships, and professional development for educators.  Total participation in IVS 5-12 courses continues to remain healthy, with FY17 again setting records at 5,848 enrollments for the year.

The top enrolling courses were high school Spanish 1 and Consumer Economics with most students taking courses upon advice from their local school proving the importance of the IVS-school partnership. IVS’ dedication to partner school support is reflected in the school satisfaction rate of 97%.

The positive data reflected in the IVS Now! report is a result of IVS’ continued dedication to quality of services and education for all students. IVS accomplishes this through the hiring and training of excellent teachers, the review and development of online courses and the focus on service for all system users.

Where do you get your news?

A recent study by Stanford University found that many middle school, high school, and college students cannot tell the difference between real news and fake news. This may be because a lot of those students are getting their news from social media sites, rather than from credible news sources. You can click HERE to listen to or read National Public Radio’s Cory Turner’s story of a non-profit organization that has established a digital curriculum for high school students that helps them assess and determine whether the news they are receiving is real or fake.
