Virtual Schools

Texas lawmakers are considering new legislation to make creating virtual high schools possible.  If it passes, students could enroll in these virtual high schools and go through 4 years of high school without ever having to sit in a classroom.  Current Texas law only allows high school students to enroll in a maximum of 2 virtual classes per semester.

Students wanting to use virtual learning is growing in Texas.  In other states, virtual schools are thriving.  In Florida, for example, there have been over 220,000 course enrollments in their virtual schools.  Check out this article for more information.
