List of Virtual Schools (From the State DPI)

Some of these schools are run by and for the students within the sponsoring district. Others primarily enroll students from throughout the State of Wisconsin, via our Open Enrollment law.


From the State Department of Public Instruction:

Online learning takes many forms and has many names. There are online courses, programs and schools, which may be called online, virtual, cyber or blended education, to name a few.

A virtual charter school is defined in Wis. Stats. § 115.001 (16) as “a charter school … in which all or a portion of the instruction is provided through means of the internet, and the pupils enrolled in and instructional staff employed by the school are geographically remote from each other.”

In addition, state statutes contain specific requirements that must be met by virtual charter schools.  See Wis. Stats. § 118.40 (8).

In Wisconsin, a virtual charter school is a specific form of online learning. It is the only form of online learning in which an open enrolled pupil may participate from home, that is, without having to physically attend school in the nonresident school district during all the days and hours that school is in session.

Any form of online learning that does not meet the statutory definition of a virtual charter school and all of the requirements of Wis. Stats. § 118.40 (8) is not a virtual charter school. That does not mean that open enrolled pupils cannot attend online classes or programs, however, the pupil cannot access these programs and courses from home; they must go to school.
