LVS Transitions Into Course Choice
The Louisiana Department of Education (LDE) is transitioning from serving as a provider of online courses offered through
the Louisiana Virtual School (LVS) to the Course Choice program which will offer various types of learning
options available through multiple providers.
Course Choice will provide students and their families access to rigorous college and career course offerings that best match
students' abilities and needs beginning SY 13-14. The Course Choice program is an integral component of Louisiana Believes, the state's plan to
empower students and teachers. For more information go to http://www.louisianacoursechoice.net or
