Online Learning: Moving Michigan toward ‘a learning model that fits the times’

Online learning options would be expanded. More school funding would be tied to performance. Year-round classes would be encouraged. And an early graduation scholarship system would be designed to offer students who are ready an incentive to graduate early and move on to college. State funding – always a key element in school choice debates – would be more tightly tied to students, even if they’re taking classes from multiple school districts. That’s a more fluid system than the one used now, when most of the money distribution is determined by where a student happens to be sitting on a school count day held each autumn. A goal of the project is to “investigate all possibilities of how we could get to a learning model that fits the times, moving Michigan into the ‘any time, any place, any way, any pace’ model” that Snyder called for last year in a special message on education, Snyder spokeswoman Sara Wurfel said.
