Many Florida high-school students choose to take online courses. Some do it to boost their grade point averages. Others might want to take courses not offered at their school. But this year, online classes are no longer a choice. They are a graduation requirement. Starting with this year’s freshman class, students must take at least one virtual course in high school. The requirement is part of a bill the Florida Legislature passed in May with the goal of expanding virtual instruction to all students so they are better prepared for college and the 21st century workforce, according to the state Department of Education.
