Schools: Virtual courses, traditional classrooms

By Charles Swenson, Coastal Observer

Students who enroll in online courses this fall in Georgetown County’s high schools will find the virtual classroom looks a lot like the brick and mortar variety. The goal of the program is to expand course offerings, not to let students sit at home in their pyjamas, according to school district officials. “We can offer more opportunities,” said Patti Hammel, the district’s director of student performance. Foreign languages and Advanced Placement classes are a particular focus, but the online curriculum also includes some core classes. That will aid students who transfer mid-year and students who need to make up classes, she said.
