The week runs from Sunday to Saturday.  The number of hours worked per day is up to the student and the Learning Coach.

FSA Assessment/EOC:  Students enrolled in the Collier Virtual School are considered public school students and are therefore required to participate in all state mandated testing.  State tests will be administered in the home zone school for the student, which is based on the student’s place of residence.
