On-line learning gets tryout at summer school

In the past, a lack of numbers would have meant those classes could not be run. Students would have to make up the courses another time, likely during the school year. For some, the delay in catching up could have meant having to spend another year in high school. Administrators did not want to see that scenario, so they came up with an alternative: The students would become their own teachers, by doing the coursework with Odysseyware, online academic software. “We’ve canceled these classes in the past, and the kids were out of luck,” said summer school co-coordinator Lori Mulligan, who is also a math teacher at Greenwich High School. “This is a first step in making sure they’re always offered. This is a way to keep the kids on track and moving forward.”
