Iowa students would have greater access to online courses under a proposal that significantly expands the state’s virtual class offerings. A committee of educators and business leaders presented the Iowa State Board of Education on Thursday with recommendations for expanding Iowa Learning Online. The program, which now has 625 students, offers 13 courses for high school credit to Iowa students. The group’s proposal calls for adding to the program over three years. The state would increase the courses it offers, while boosting enrollment to 5,000 students. The growth would allow students to take online courses full or part time, while providing them access to classes their school might not offer.
