Students In Mich. Get New Online Education Options

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Students in Michigan are getting more online education choices this school year.

The Detroit Free Press reports five new cyberschools, where students take all their classes online, are opening, and many school districts are boosting their online offerings.

Also, public school students in grades 5-12 will be able to take up to two online courses per semester offered by any district or the state's virtual school. A statewide catalog of online classes maintained by the Michigan Virtual University is set to begin running in October.

Since 2009, the number of school districts and charter schools that have permission from the Michigan Department of Education to run programs in which students take all or most of their classes online has grown from 12 to 192.
