Lieutenant Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti is looking to expand the virtual classroom to more rural schools around the state. Sanguinetti stopped by Heyworth High School Monday afternoon to talk to a few students about their experiences in a virtual classroom. Junior Garrett Houston is taking calculus. He says he just couldn’t make calculus fit into his schedule when the school offered it, so he’s taking it online. “I’ve always been ahead in math and now I’m getting to the point where they don’t really have a math course for me after calculus,” Houston explained. But his course options are expanded through the online classes. Houston says he’s also taken Mandarin through the virtual classroom.
