The Southwest Virginia Education and Training Network (SVETN) is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit corporation governed by educators. SVETN was established in response to a need to increase curriculum offerings in small rural schools throughout southwestern Virginia. Organized originally for the purpose of facilitating instruction by interactive video, within the past decade other distance learning modes have emerged. Collaborative, regional video activities for all intents and purposes have ceased. SVETN is headquartered in Abingdon at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center and staffed by two full-time and one part-time employee.
