Not so long ago, if a high school student wanted a job, they were limited to working after school, on weekends or during the summer. Now, through a relatively new program in Chico Unified School District, students who want to work, as well as students who have health issues that prevent them from going to school and those who just don’t want to be on campus, have another option available to them.  The school district is for the second year offering the Panther Online Academy and the Viking Online Academy, which allow students to take some or all of their classes online. The program came about as district staff, led by former Director of Secondary Education Dave McKay, tried to find ways to better serve students and keep those students connected to the district, CUSD Director of Secondary Education Jay Marchant said.
