INDIANAPOLIS - Officials have approved the creation of Indiana's first virtual private schools, making them eligible to participate in the state's private school voucher program.

The State Board of Education voted Wednesday in favor of giving two-year probationary accreditation to online school plans for GEO Focus Academy and FaithPrep.
