The Greater Ohio Virtual School (GOVS) is a comprehensive educational program for students in grades 7-12 who reside in Ohio. This school is established under Ohio Charter School Law and provides a virtual educational program at no cost to the student. The school is operated under the direction of school superintendent, John Lazares and is sponsored by the Warren County ESC
GOVS' mission is to provide students with a highly personal and continuous connection to learning through an Internet based education. We believe that people are empowered by their independent use of information technologies and that they are united by opportunities to share resources and communicate in our local and global communities. We deem that this quality instructional alternative will serve individual needs and prepare the student to be a contributing member of society. The Greater Ohio Virtual School will develop in each student the art of communication, the ability to engage in critical thinking and to demonstrate the mastery of the academic building blocks necessary for a successful future.
