Virtual school gets underway

Thomasville- The "Bishop Hall School" in Thomasville is participating in a new "virtual school" program.

     It's one of twelve schools in the state that are taking part in the online classes. Teacher Doug Haydel says virtual classes are perfect for disabled students or those who are ill for extended periods. "It's a way to get what they may have missed or may be missing without having to go back to the school. It's really the beginning of, I think, the expansion of education," he says.

     The virtual courses will count as class credit toward graduation. But the students will receive their diplomas from their actual school.
