Allentown School District fights to win back cyber school students through online schooling
Published: Friday, June 22, 2012, 4:50 AM
About 300 Allentown School Districtstudents have opted out of the traditional classroom setting in favor of cyber schools, which has cost the district about $1.2 million annually.
Now, the district is fighting to win those students back. Officials are looking to expand the Allentown Virtual Academy, an online schooling program offered in-house that district officials hope will recruit back some of the parents and students who have chosen cyber charter schools.
