Online Learning 21f

Section 21f of the FY2013 State School Aid Act expands access to digital learning options for students in Michigan.  This legislation enables public school students in grades 5-12, with the consent of a parent or guardian, to enroll in up to two online courses during an academic term, semester, or trimester. Enrollment in online courses under Section 21f cannot result in a course load that exceeds a full-time schedule.

Please follow the steps listed below, if your RPS student is interested in pursuing this opportunity.
