District 203 opens door to possibility of course overload

Naperville School District 203 could be warming to the idea of high school students taking more than seven courses in a semester as long as one of those classes is offered through the local online consortium. Giving students at Naperville Central and North the chance to overload their semester schedule is one of the options being weighed by District 203 officials to encourage more students to participate in the Expanding Learning Opportunities consortium, also known as eLo. Prior to the 2014-15 academic year, the district partnered with Indian Prairie School District 204 and Wheaton Warrenville School District 200 to create a consortium to give high school students access to online courses taught by teachers in the three districts. The classes would provide the same rigor and accountability students would receive if they took the course in a bricks-and-mortar classroom.
