As the Internet continues to weave its way into our everyday lives, local students increasingly are turning to virtual classrooms to expand their school experience. Students log onto online classes for a variety of reasons. Some want to take accelerated or other courses not offered by their schools, some need to make up classes to graduate, and others can’t attend traditional classes for personal reasons. Most local school districts have offered some type of online classes for the past five or six years, and they work with third parties who develop and provide the coursework. Many educators want to increase participation in online classes, and some school leaders say they eventually may require students to take at least one online course during their academic career.
