Virtual Savings? Online Courses Bring Better Access but Little Impact on the Bottom Line
Schaeffer, Brett
School Administrator, v61 n4 p20 Apr 2004
For Mike Simeck, superintendent of the 900-student Dansville, Michigan, school district, adding online courses to the district's high school class offerings means enhancing the curriculum, not necessarily saving dollars. A nonprofit company, Virtual High School is one of the leaders in online course delivery on the K-12 level, offering more than 150 full-semester online classes, from the familiar (AP biology and American history) to the uncommon (bioethics, number theory and maritime history). This article discusses the incorporation of online courses in the Dansville, Michigan, school district and Mike Simeck's opinion on online schooling.
