“The fact is our students are learning all the time,” Luna said. For many, their school hours are the least technological parts of their day. Parts of his plan include:
The state will not only allow school districts to expand virtual offerings, but require all 9th graders to take two online courses starting in 2012-2013.
All 9th graders will receive a laptop. “We must recognize that hard-cover textbooks are becoming a thing of the past.”
If a student meets all high school graduation requirements by the end of his or her junior year, the state will pay for dual-credit courses in the students's senior year.
