Florida Virtual School remains the nation's largest online education provider.

The Florida Virtual School remains the largest provider  of online courses in the country, according to a new report from Evergreen Education Group.

Students enrolled in nearly 260,000 courses through the school in the 2010-2011 school year.

Florida trails other states in the number of students enrolled full-time in online programs, but a recently approved bill that expands full-time enrollment could raise those numbers. In addition, 56 school districts operate online programs offering full-time and part-time instruction.

The Florida Virtual School will begin offering diplomas in the 2012-2013 school year. Last year, lawmakers required students take at least one online course in order to graduate.
