Muncy School District has developed online courses taught by certified staff members that are much cheaper than cyber school expenses, according to school officials. The administration recommended and the school board approved Monday night payment for a pre-approved online course. The course costs $1,500 for one to five students and $2,400 for six to 10 students. It serves two purposes, according to Dr. Kimberly A. Hamilton, director of curriculum, instruction and assessment. It is for students in need of credit recovery, but it also is being used for students who are “doubling up” on areas such as science and marine ecology.
