More cyber schools are likely on the way for Georgia .

The state’s Charter Schools Commission Thursday agreed to boost cyber school funding—from an amount of $3,400, to $5,800 per student.

The Commission’s actions Thursday include the go-ahead for Georgia Connections Academy, the only K-12 cyber school approved.

There was also a pair of K-8 charter schools and a middle school approved by the Commission.
