In Connecticut, the virtual school movement gained additional momentum last month as state education officials announced a partnership with a Florida company to offer online summer courses for students who need to make up credits in courses they failed. The State Department of Education, using federal funds, will pay the $150 course fee for each of the first 300 students who sign up for the summer programs offered by Florida Virtual School. “The response has been overwhelming. . . . Clearly, this is a huge area of need and interest,” said Karen Kaplan, educational technology director for the State Department of Education. Students can log on anytime to do the coursework.
