VA MULTIDIVISIONAL PROVIDER
All MOP providers must Apply to the Virginia Department of Education and provide:
A multidivision online provider must be accredited by one of the Virginia Board of Education-approved agencies
Have all curriculum for each course approved by a 3rd party corelation service
Documentation to show that the 3rd party has approved the courses match the newest Standards of Learning
Providers may offer one course or a full array of courses as an online course or program provider contracted with a local school division.
Requirement for Parents
Any school district may enter into a contract with an approved MOP to provide courses but is not required to; however, any parent requesting to utilize a MOP must have or be willing to enroll their child into the public school system.
A parent that does get their school district to contract with a MOP will not have to pay for the courses or will have to pay the remaining of what the district did not pay.
If the school district refuses to contract with MOP, children may still take courses through the MOP, and they will still transfer in as approved courses to the public school; however, the parent will have to pay for them.
If there are a multitude of courses that parent plans to enroll their child in without fiscal support from the school district they should consider enrolling in the Full Academy instead.
