Senate Bill 980 would allow more virtual schools to offer services in Florida

The following bill has been filed for the 2022 Florida legislative session, which begins Jan. 11 and runs through March 11.


TITLE: Virtual Instruction Programs

SPONSOR: Sen. Manny Diaz Jr., R — Hialeah

WHAT IT WOULD DO:  SB 980 would make it easier for out-of-state virtual schools to offer services in Florida by removing requirements that providers must have an administrative office in Florida, that their administrators are Florida residents and that their instructors are Florida-certified teachers. If passed, the bill would take effect in July 2022.
