Area high school students soon may have the opportunity to take online courses through private colleges for credit. Jefferson-Lewis Board of Cooperative Educational Services officials are discussing with upstate and Central New York colleges the possibility of offering high schoolers blended and online courses — which could start as early as this summer. “What we’re trying to figure out is how a student can walk away with the college’s transcript,” said Dawn D. Ludovici, Jefferson-Lewis BOCES assistant superintendent. “Technology is really the seed that started the conversion. The capability of providing coursework online reduces the proximity problem we have when working with colleges.” A blended course would incorporate online courses and classroom time, whether at the college or at the student’s high school, Mrs. Ludovici said.
