Virtual High School
The York County School Division Virtual High School (VHS) is a program that offers interactive online courses to secondary students. Courses are delivered using a course "learning management system" through the Internet and available to students 24 hours a day. Students are actively engaged in online discussions and learn to track messages, submit documents electronically, and meet online with teachers and students through a "virtual classroom". Students must have an active email account, access to word processing and presentation software, Internet, and specific plug-ins.
