For about 10 years, the Louisiana Virtual School has provided online courses that may not otherwise be available in some school districts. But access to the online courses has been threatened by budget cuts. While students once were able to take classes through LVS for free, now their school districts will be charged $150 per course. Loss of funding is just part of the budget cuts on the part of the state Department of Education totaling about $1 million, said Claudia Blanchard, curriculum director for the St. Landry Parish School Board.
