Delphos Jefferson High School is joining a growing list of Ohio schools jumping on the virtual learning train.
The upcoming school year will see the district start up a virtual learning option for students, meaning they can take online courses from home.
Treca Digital Academy out of Marion will administer the program where students would work with online teachers but still have access to the computer lab at Delphos Jefferson and follow-up from a local supervisor.
The district has lost 21 students from its rosters over the past seven years to virtual schools.
The hope is this move will keep students in the district while giving them a new option for learning and a possible jump-start on their college future.
The state will still pay its per-student funding to the district even for virtual students who would see no additional cost to sign up.
If the district doesn't offer a specific class that treca does, students could sign up for individual online classes.
Virtual students will still be able to participate in the schools extra-curricular activities.
