How Las Cruces Public Schools offers online education statewide

If necessity is the mother of invention, the pandemic of our generation has created several innovative avenues in the way of education. None has had more of an impact than the evolution of virtual school, and a new consortium that includes Las Cruces Public Schools is creating a hub for learning that is accessible to more than just students in Las Cruces.

The New Mexico Virtual Course Consortium (NMVC²) is a network of public school districts and charter schools under the guidance of the New Mexico Public Education Department to provide high quality, standards-aligned supplemental online courses for subject areas that might be difficult to staff locally. For example, a student in Sierra County who would like to take an AP English class can enroll with LCPS and get that instruction online while staying enrolled in their home district.
