Now, students can take online classes as early as kindergarten and must take some in high school. They can earn college credit or hone career skills while still in high school. They can take advantage of taxpayer-funded scholarships to attend private schools or qualify for transfers from one public school to another based on the schools’ state or federal performance ratings. “I think what the whole movement has done is get parents more involved in their children’s education,” said state Sen. Evelyn Lynn, an Ormond Beach Republican and former senior administrator for Volusia County schools. “We’re beginning to see different children have different needs. As an educator, I want what works for children.” Virtual classes, which allow students to complete courses online, are among the newest school choice offerings.
