New law expands student access to online schooling

Senate Bill 603 created the Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program, which will allow students grades K-12 to enroll in online classes through state-approved providers at the cost of their school district. The bill was passed with the intent of expanding course access options for students, especially in rural and cash-strapped districts. In theory, though, a student could enroll full-time in a virtual school on his or her school district’s dime.
