After my post on FLVS, I thought it was settled that home education students had to provide a SS# or get a district assigned student number. Then yesterday I got two conflicting emails from home educators regarding what they were told by FLVS. So, I contacted FLVS again and got the reply below from the administration. It should be the correct and uniform policy from FLVS.
“While a social security number is requested, it is not required. If you are not co-enrolled in another public school then FLVS will issue you a Student Identification Number. If you are co-enrolled, the number used by your zoned school district must be provided to FLVS as those numbers must match.”
