Five years from now, Center Grove students might be able to take any course they need for graduation online.
The goal is not to do away with the typical classrooms, where students spend time with teachers and classmates. But allowing a student to take a required class such as Algebra I or English 10 online would free up time in their schedule to take a class that helps them learn about a potential career and would give student athletes and students who work more options in planning their day, online coordinator Joanna Ray said.
Center Grove schools started a program last summer called the global campus, which allowed students to choose from nine online courses, including health and wellness and probability and statistics. More than 150 students signed up for online courses last summer, and right now 114 students are taking online classes during the school year.
