Senators advance bill to shift money for online education

A bill that aims to expand online learning opportunities for students — partly by redirecting public dollars — gained preliminary approval Thursday in the Senate. The Senate voted 19-7 in favor of SB65 but must vote for the bill one more time before it can move to the House. The bill aims to expand learning opportunities for students by allowing them to take online courses offered by public and private providers to be certified by the state school board. The funding would follow the students, instead of a local district getting all the cash for that student.
