According to a U.S. News report in 2016, more than 5.8 million college students were enrolled in online courses. That number continues to increase. As we prepare students for college readiness, we believe having the option to take online courses is important for students. We are excited to share that Liberty Public Schools began offering semester and year-long online courses during the 2018-2019 school year. If you are interested in taking a class through Liberty Virtual or through another approved vendor, please see your guidance counselor.
Students take online courses for three main reasons: credit recovery, credit requisition, and credit enhancement. Below is a definition for each:
Student did not pass the course and needs to repeat that course or something comparable.
Student is behind in credits.
Student wants to get ahead for graduation or take courses for schedule management.
We will be offering a limited number of courses. Space is limited. Preference is given to juniors and seniors who need credits to graduate. Students who take a course have the flexibility to complete the course off campus if they maintain a passing grade. Students who are interested should speak to their counselor.
