The city school board approved a pair of policies Monday that will make it possible for students to take online classes off campus and to earn credits earlier than a traditional school schedule would allow. “It’s definitely a break from the norm,” Superintendent Jon Paul Campbell said. “We’re trying to get to a place where it’s more anyplace, anytime learning.” One of the two policies deals exclusively with online learning, and paves the way for educators in Jacksonville to develop their own web-based courses. The other policy establishes three options — one of which is online learning — students can use to earn high school credits ahead of schedule.
