North Penn School District discusses offering cyber education

The North Penn School District might soon bring cyber education onboard as part of its academic offerings. Superintendent Curt Dietrich said that administrators will be bringing the idea to the school board next month. Several other school districts, including Methacton and Perkiomen Valley, are working on this too, through the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit, Dietrich said. This year, 116 students who live in the North Penn School District area go to cyber schools instead of public school, with 20 attending other charter schools. This cost the district $904,000 this year through March.
