Spartanburg County Public Virtual School students trade physical classroom for online one

No backpacks. No books. No bulletin board or rows of desks. For students who enroll in the new Spartanburg County Public Virtual School, the only requirement for their “classroom” is a computer and an Internet connection. Several statewide virtual public charter schools exist in South Carolina. Local educators say the Spartanburg County Public Virtual School combines Web-based learning with a local connection.Virtual school students technically will be enrolled in one of the seven school districts but take a few or all of their courses online, at home or in a school computer lab. Also, an in-county director — Nora Moore — will serve as a liaison between local families and the online provider, making sure materials are received and students are on track.
