21f Online Learning Opportunities
Section 21f of the FY2013 State School Aid Act expands access to digital learning options for students in Michigan. This legislation enables public school students in grades 6-12, with the consent of a parent or guardian, to enroll in up to two online courses during an academic, semester. Enrollment in online courses under Section 21f cannot result in a course load that exceeds a full-time schedule. Deadline for course enrollment is the last day of previous semester. These courses will contain letter grades just like regular courses.
If you are interested in this option for your student, please consider these things listed below and check the HPS website under the online learning tab for live links.
