The PA Virtual special education program includes supports and services for students who have educational disabilities. Qualified staff delivers specially designed-instruction to meet the individual needs of students through an Individual Education Program (IEP). Students with disabilities will be provided with the strategies, tools, instruction, and services that will allow them to maximize their learning.
PA Virtual Charter School is required to provide a free, appropriate public education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment (LRE) under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

If a student is found eligible for online special education support and services, our team will develop an Individualized Educational Program (IEP) to meet the student’s unique needs.
