Students at Auburn City Schools will have increased access to online courses, following action by the Auburn City Schools Board of Education Tuesday evening. The board unanimously approved the addition of a Virtual Education Option Policy to the Auburn City Schools Policy Manual at their regular meeting. Cristen Herring, assistant superintendent of curriculum, said the policy ensures students have the opportunity to acquire all credits needed for graduation through online courses. The policy was formed after the Alabama Legislature passed a bill in 2015 requiring schools to develop a virtual school plan by the 2016-2017 school year. While Auburn City Schools has offered online courses in the past, the new policy expands the scope of classes available to students.
