The Code of Virginia at  § 22.1-212.23 et seq, allows school divisions to offer online instruction to students using a private organization, educational institution or nonprofit virtual school organization that meets Board of Education approval criteria to operate as a MOP. 

MOPs supply virtual teachers coupled with online content to K-12 students. Providers may offer one course or a full array of courses as an online course or program provider contracted with a local school division. The online query tool provides a list of approved MOP and a list of the approved courses.
