Driven by the explosion of online learning opportunities and the need to cut costs, school systems are increasingly turning to new ways of offering summer school and to “credit recovery” programs that allow students to take online classes during the school year. The goal is to keep students on track toward graduation. Instead of a teacher teaching one subject to the whole class as in traditional summer school, students work at computers in the same room on courses ranging from British literature to geometry and music appreciation. These courses cost students $25 — far less than the $200 cost that they would have paid for traditional summer school — but they have limited enrollment.
