NHCS Virtual School

​​​​​​NHCS staff has been directed by the Board of Education to draft an application for a virtual school. The application will be reviewed by the Board and, upon approval, be submitted for approval by the State Board of Education. Establishing a virtual school for the district allows for a singular focus and greater collaboration, consistency, and continuity for families choosing this option. It also allows the district to hire a principal with experience in virtual learning. The estimated timeline for establishing a virtual school is six months to one year.
