Virtual Schools

Virtual schools are web-based learning initiatives designed to meet the various needs of students. For some students, online learning is a perfect match, for other students the experience can be unsuccessful. 

Michigan Virtual School  provides online courses for students. These courses vary from traditional semester long courses to fast-track sessions that can be used to catch-up on missed credits so students can graduate on time.

The Center on Online Learning and Students with Disabilities has information on making online learning more accessible, engaging, and effective for K-12 learners with disabilities.
