About Illinois Virtual School (IVS)

Illinois Virtual School was established in 2001 as the official supplemental virtual learning provider of the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE). Over the past 20 years, IVS has been the trusted and highest-quality online learning school serving the best interest of our educational communities across Illinois. This work continues today. IVS is a proud participant of the ISBE's virtual course catalog. Public school districts that enroll students in courses from the catalog can request reimbursement from ISBE and subject to appropriations by the General Assembly. For more information about Illinois's course catalog, please visit their website here.

The IVS program is administered through the Peoria County Regional Office of Education #48, a member of the Illinois Association of Regional Superintendents of Schools (IARSS). Working in partnership with public and private schools as well as homeschooled students, IVS offers both classes for students and professional development programs for educators through online web-bases services. Online learning increases educational access to improve educational outcomes.

Illinois Virtual School is also a member of the Virtual Learning Leadership Alliance, an association of the chiefs of virtual programs that provides collegial support and collaborative opportunities to the individual members and member organizations to share resources, services, and expertise.
