Benjamin Franklin High School is looking to develop online coursework, both to bring in new money and to increase the school’s reach. At the board’s meeting Dec. 19, school president and CEO Timothy Rusnak gave a presentation on Louisiana’s Course Choice program. This online learning program allows high school students to take a multitude of online courses through other institutions, in-state or otherwise, and bring that grade back to the students’ home high schools. The state program began this school year. Benjamin Franklin High School will begin next year with an AP calculus course taught by Michael Masterson, who has developed online learning at community colleges. He is working with Rusnak to develop the online curriculum and the platform that students will use to access the coursework.
