Public Reporting Data for Students Enrolled in Full-Time Multidivision Online Providers (language only)

Item 145 #25h

Item 145 #25h

Direct Aid to Public Education


Page 169, after line 27, insert:

"31. Beginning in the second year, any school division that enrolls students in a full-time multidivision online provider (MOP) program, as defined in § 22.1-212.3 of the Code of Virginia, shall establish a separate school for such students and enroll such students in the separate school.  Students who are not enrolled full-time in a MOP program shall not be enrolled in the same school as students enrolled in a full-time MOP program."


(This amendment provides that students enrolled in full-time MOP programs shall be enrolled in a separate public school for public reporting purposes, effective with the 2021-22 school year. Currently, school divisions are permitted to enroll full-time MOP students in a traditional public school for public reporting purposes, although though these students typically do not receive instruction from the staff of the school, and reside outside of the enrolling school division. This would ensure that the public reporting information for traditional public schools reflects the student body that physically attends such traditional public schools.)
