The Texas Virtual School Network (TxVSN) is a supplemental rather than diploma granting program. Electronic courses will supplement the services the district currently offers students, based on students’ academic needs. The home (receiving) district will continue to award credits and diplomas and the TxVSN partners with the home district to meet student needs. Districts are course providers and private providers are eligible via districts. TxVSN, (2009). Texas Virtual School Network. Retrieved from http://www.txvsn.org/
