Montgomery Virtual Program (MVP) is a flexible, online educational program. Focusing on partnerships allows MVP to stand out among other online providers and provide diverse learning solutions.
MVP partners with families and schools to create an ideal environment for online learning. Students experience success in a collaborative model grounded in continuous communication and support.
Unlike other “one size fits all” online programs found in the marketplace, MVP prides itself on meeting the individual needs of diverse learners. While remaining enrolled in their local school, MVP students are able to complete online coursework on a schedule that works for them. Students can still participate in school-sponsored activities and athletic programs and attend vocational/technical high school when enrolled in MVP.
We offer premier customer service with award-winning curriculum. We can be your total online learning solution with your branding or we can simply be an extended service you offer to your students.
Operated by the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit (MCIU), student achievement is our top priority. MVP utilizes today’s most innovative content providers to offer a wide range of rigorous and engaging courses taught by highly qualified teachers. A wide variety of programming options are available.
MONTGOMERY COUNTY INTERMEDIATE UNIT (MCIU)
Montgomery County Intermediate Unit is one of 29 Intermediate Units formed by the Pennsylvania State Legislature in 1971 to provide support to local school districts. Created to replace the County Office of Superintendent, intermediate units provide special services as needed by the educational community in their service area. Through cooperation and collaboration among schools and community agencies, intermediate units work to provide innovative, responsive and cost-effective programs that save taxpayers millions of dollars annually. Pennsylvania’s intermediate units provide direct and indirect classroom support to more than two million students and nearly 147,000 school professional staff in Pennsylvania.
Today, the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit provides a vast array of effective and efficient services that meet the educational and social service needs of Montgomery County’s 200-plus schools, including the 22 public school districts, more than 150 nonpublic schools, four career-technical schools, and the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Montgomery County Intermediate Unit services are provided through nine divisions: Curriculum, Instruction and Professional Development; Human Resources; Technology and Information Services; Legislative Services and Grant Development; Financial and Management Services; Nonpublic School Services; PaTTAN; Special Education, and Communications.
Funding sources include state subsidy, government and foundation grants, contributions from districts, and fees for service. Its administrative staff is led by an executive director/chief executive officer, an assistant executive director of instruction, and a chief financial officer. The executive director/CEO provides leadership and direction with cabinet members representing each of the nine divisions. The Montgomery County Intermediate Unit is governed by a 22-member board of directors composed of representatives from each of the 22 component school districts in Montgomery County.
