Workshop Background Information:
In June 2013, the Michigan Legislature and Governor approved the State School Aid Act. One section of this legislation, Section 21f, focuses on expanding online learning options for Michigan students. This legislation went into effect in January 2014 and newly requires Michigan school districts to provide any pupil in grades 5-12 the opportunity to enroll in up to 2 online courses for each academic term.
With this new option come certain requirements for any selected online course, such as appropriate credit allocations, student aptitude, and quality of the course. It is important to learn how to navigate the state catalog of online courses in order to ensure that these requirements will be met.
