Q. When will North Carolina allow public online schools for grades K-12? Will the county pay for online school for individual students?
A. North Carolina already allows free online classes for middle and high school students enrolled in public schools through the North Carolina Virtual Public School. You can read more about that here: www.ncvps.org.
Pender County is also trying to create its own virtual public school, which you can read more about here.
In June 2012, more than half of the state’s public school districts signed a resolution opposing a virtual charter school that would serve all grades of students. Click here to read about that.
