Do I need to have access to a computer to attend?
Yes. However, based on financial need and eligibility, Florida Online School (FLOS) may loan a computer system (including computer and printer) to support the learning process. These computer systems are FLOS instructional property and must be returned when the student leaves the school. FLOS will arrange for technical support and troubleshooting for these computer systems. Each family will need to secure their own internet service provider. In certain cases, based on financial need or other circumstances, FLOS may provide a stipend to offset the cost of the internet service. This determination will take place during the enrollment process.
What computer skills are required?
The Learning Coach needs to have at least basic computer skills. Use of the computer is an important part of the online school program. In the elementary grades, it's mostly the Learning Coach who interacts with the computer. Middle school and high school students are most successful if they have basic computer skills.
