Research Request Proposals are accepted through 12:00 p.m. (Eastern) on the penultimate Friday of each month; any proposals received thereafter will be reviewed the following month. The FLVS Research Committee meets the last Friday of each month.

Research Study FAQs

Yes, external researchers may receive demo access to FLVS courses upon the completion of a non-disclosure agreement between FLVS and researcher.

Yes, we are able to provide anonymous student level data. Researchers that receive ANY student level data must be fingerprinted and cleared through the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) database. Fingerprinting can either be completed at the FLVS Virtual Learning Center, located in Orlando, Florida, or through Fieldprint, which has locations all over the United States. Costs associated with fingerprinting are the responsibility of the researcher.

Yes, surveys can be distributed to students and/or teachers. Surveys must be included with the initial proposal for the committee to review. Researchers that are surveying students, even anonymously, must get fingerprinting clearance prior to survey distribution.

The research program manager will work with you hand-in-hand during the length of your study, and will work with the various departments within FLVS to fulfill the needs of your research.
