The future of public education is coming to Stevenson High School, and it could someday blur the lines between who is a Patriot and who is not. The school’s first online class will be offered next year with no additional costs from its traditional counterpart. Advanced Placement teachers Dan Larsen and Andy Conneen, as well as Brad Smith, head of Stevenson’s social studies division, spoke with the board during its April 20 meeting about the version of AP American Government that they will offer digitally in the 2015-16 year, and what it could mean for the rest of the school if it succeeds. The class will be an experiment to see how well, and how many, high schoolers can handle study-at-home freedom, and whether SHS’ existing infrastructure can handle more offerings like it.
