Online learning for Michigan’s public school students is kicking into high gear in January, when students get more choices in deciding how and where they want to take their classes. A statewide catalog of online courses is being assembled this month for students in grades 5-12 who — for the first time — will be able to take up to two online courses per semester as part of their regular school curriculum. Under changes in Michigan school law approved in 2012, students will need permission from their parents to sign up for the classes, which start in January, but they no longer will need approval from their home district, which has to pay providers for the courses.
