Thousands of CMS students are already taking classes online, in settings ranging from the small all-online Performance Learning Center to large schools such as Independence and Olympic. The new e-Learning Academy takes the e-volution a step further. Online education “is the difference between the horse and cart and the motor car,” says Cynthia Wellner, who’s in charge of those classes at Independence. More than 200 students there are enrolled in everything from remedial classes to college courses. Logging on from home won’t work for everyone. But CMS leaders say the e-Learning Academy could prove a great option for highly motivated teens whose work schedules, learning styles or health needs don’t mesh with going to school every day.
