LABELLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Students are invited to explore different career paths at Florida Online School (FLOS), a program of the Hendry County School District that is now accepting enrollment applications for the 2020-2021 school year.
At the career readiness-focused school, students can pair a solid academic foundation with hands-on learning experiences in growing career fields like information technology, digital design, business, and more. Whether their path leads them directly into the workplace, to the military, or to higher education, career readiness provides students with the skills they need to get there.
“At FLOS, we’re challenging traditional methods of learning and empowering our students to reach their potential,” FLOS Head of School Clark Berry. “Our teachers and staff work tirelessly to spark every student’s joy of learning and help them discover their passions.”
In addition to career readiness courses, FLOS students have access to a robust curriculum and attend live virtual classes taught by state-licensed teachers. Students are offered a full course load in the core subjects of math, science, English language arts, history, art and music, as well as a host of electives including world languages. Teachers regularly communicate with students and their families via email, phone and during one-on-one meetings.
An online and blended public-school program, FLOS is available tuition-free to students in grades K-11 who reside anywhere in the state. Many families and students choose FLOS because it provides an alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar education. Athletes, advanced learners, and students seeking a bullying-free environment can balance a full academic course load along with extracurricular pursuits or medical needs.
Outside of the classroom, FLOS offers online student clubs and in-person activities such as field trips, community service opportunities and social gatherings.
Students and families are encouraged to attend an online or in-person information session hosted by the school. More information on FLOS, how to enroll, and a schedule of upcoming events can be found at flos.k12.com.
