Online-only programs can be a boon to families, particularly those with thriving students who can’t make a traditional school schedule work. But don’t expect such schools to gain much ground on traditional schools anytime soon. Growth has been stymied by the Texas Legislature, reluctant to open up the enrollment process or increase the number of operators. “I’m a believer that what we’re growing is choice,” iUniversity Prep’s director Kaye Rogers said. “Brick-and-mortar campuses, they aren’t going to go away. Virtual is growing … but I think it’s a place for certain kids.”
