Williamson County Schools will offer online courses to high school students next school year. Several levels of English, math, science and history are included in the 17 proposed courses. Williamson County Director of Schools Mike Looney said the district aims to offer another educational choice to students. “We’re just trying to be cutting edge and ahead of the curve,” Looney said. Looney said the district envisions a blended learning model — a mix of online coursework and in-person interaction with teachers — for students who choose to take online courses. “Some students might want to take an online course in 7th period and go to work and then do the coursework later,” Looney said. “Then they may schedule meetings with a teacher.”
