SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — Seminole County Public Schools will offer students just two learning options for the 2021-2022 school year.
They include the traditional, on-campus face-to-face learning -- and an at-home virtual school option.
District officials have an important reminder for parents who plan to choose the second option for their kids -- the registration deadline is Tuesday.

SCPS says even students who were enrolled in Seminole County Virtual School during the previous school year must reapply by Tuesday’s deadline.
Just a friendly reminder that TODAY (7/20) is the deadline to enroll your student in our Seminole County Virtual School @SeminoleVirtual for the upcoming 2021-2022 School Year! Otherwise, face-2-face will be their default option. https://t.co/qA1160537A https://t.co/HydwouVXGc— SCPS Info (@SCPSInfo) July 20, 2021

Since no hybrid learning option exists for the upcoming school year, students who choose the full-time, off-campus virtual program will enroll in 6 or more courses.
According to the district’s website, this option “is for any student who wants to take ALL virtual courses for the 21-22 school year and withdraw from their zoned/home school site.”
