The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that the projected $3 million shortfall for the North Carolina Virtual Public School means those and other districts may have to tap local funding if they want students to take the free classes. The virtual school receives $20 million for its budget, which is divided among school systems based on previous enrollment. Teachers are paid to teach online courses that often are hard to find in districts or don’t fit a student’s schedule. Officials expect more than 28,000 students in the spring — 3,000 more than originally forecast.
