Taking Virtual Learning from Florida to the World

It’s fair to say that Florida Virtual School (FLVS) has long since become relevant in many places other than Florida. This pioneer institution of online and blended learning has a reach across the nation and in 65 other countries. Helping lead the expansion charge is Dr. Polly Haldeman, FLVS’s Chief Customer Officer.

Polly is helping FLVS evolve from a blended learning platform for public school students in the state of Florida to a multi-national curriculum licensing operation. When asked about the content created by FLVS, Polly says, “What we have is quality, rigorous, and full of integrity; and it's built upon the principles of educators and all the great things that we know that we should do for kids.”

Polly is a Florida native who grew up in a rural area, where she graduated high school with a class of 13 students. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree, Master’s Degree, a Specialist of Education in Teacher Leadership, and a Doctorate of Education. She has been with FLVS for nearly 14 years and has grown with it through all the changes that have happened over that time. All indicators point to Polly leading FLVS into an even brighter global education future.
