Virtual School

Webster County's Virtual School

Webster County Schools offers a virtual learning experience for students in 6th through 12th grades. This option offers off-campus learning for students which addresses the same learning standards taught in the regular classroom.

During virtual learning students are expected to follow a special daily schedule. Students who choose virtual learning are expected to remain enrolled in the program for at least a semester. Transfers back to in-person learning will only take place at the end of the semester or if a student is failing, at the end of a grading period.

Requirements include:

  • Completion of online application

  • Home internet access

  • Daily virtual attendance for each course (between the hours of 8 to 4).

Webster County's Virtual School students:

  • Receive instruction from state-certified teachers

  • Receive use of an Apple iPad

  • Have access to school counselors and social workers

  • Receive appropriate special education services

  • Are eligible to participate in athletics

  • Receive report cards
