On Friday, The Georgia Charter Schools Commission approved the state’s first virtual charter high schools. Georgia Students will now be able to attend high school online.
There are two statewide campuses, The Kaplan Academy of Georgia for students in grades 4-12 and the Provost Academy Georgia high school for gifted, struggling and special needs students who want the flexibility of learning at their own pace.
The virtual charter schools will not receive as much funding as other charter schools in the state. The schools were not offered additional federal funds by the Georgia Charter Schools Commission. This issue is part of a legal battle now headed to the state Supreme Court.
