A Kansas Online School Helps Traditional School

Centre’s Kansas Online Learning Program, now is in its seventh year, has benefited the district’s traditional classes, coordinator Vickie Jirak told the Centre school board Monday.

“When I went through the numbers, I was on a natural high,” she said. “Virtual has paid for itself and helped our brick and mortar.”

In the program’s first five years, the district received $5,000 from the state for each student enrolled on Sept. 20. Enrollment ranged from 23.7 in 2010-’11 to 282.8 in 2014-’15.
