  1. Are frequently absent from school, and their absences are directly related to their severe or life-threatening physical condition.

  3. A Licensed physician/advanced practice registered nurse has provided documentation that an associated or accompanying chronic illness is so severe as to affect the student's school attendance.
  4. A medically fragile student is one whose illness and treatment frequently places him/her in extreme, precarious or life threatening circumstances. In addition, he/she may be technology-dependent for life support systems, i.e., tracheotomy, gastrostomy, etc.

In order to apply for the Virtual Academy, the following must be completed:
