The Spokane Virtual Learning (SVL) program is a Web-based educational project of Spokane Public Schools that provides instructor-led online courses to students. All instructors have valid state certification in their subject areas. SVL presents students with an interactive learning experience, not a textbook online.
Spokane Virtual Learning courses are available to all Spokane Public Schools and outside district students. Because SVL is an OSPI approved Multidistrict Online Provider all credits have been approved by the State of Washington.
There is NO CHARGE for Spokane Public Schools students during the school year.
Options for students outside of Spokane Public Schools:
OPTION 1: Inter-district funding/Shared FTE Agreement Your school district can acknowledge that you are taking one or more classes with SVL and make FTE funding available to support your learning (no tuition necessary).
OPTION 2: Tuition Tuition is $350 per semester, per semester class.
OPTION 3: District-to-District Partnership School districts can provide their own online learning program with no up-front costs or loss of FTE by contracting with SVL for their online course offerings at reduced rates.
Spokane Virtual Learning has a very good success rate for students because of the strong student support provided. Although students can take all or part of their courses online, it is recommended that the ideal situation is for students to take a portion of their courses in person and the rest online for the greatest success. SVL online curriculum is the same Spokane Public Schools curriculum as in the classrooms, just in an online format. Therefore, students are better prepared to take state assessments and to be college and career ready.
According to the 2008-09 Legislative Review of Online Programs, SVL has some of the highest student completion and pass rates in Washington State:
