Virtual School Going Forward
Next year virtual school will be continuing. The plan is too have have as few teachers teaching virtually as possible. Administrators hope that there will be no virtual FHSD teachers but with some of the larger courses that everyone takes, it is possible there may be few. There has been a program in Missouri since 2019 called MOCAP, Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program, that offers partial and full virtual schooling for students.
“Not many students will want to do virtual school next year, electives might stop being offered, and staffing will be hard,” Counselor Lorraine Smith said. “You’d have to pull a physical teacher out for virtual which might only have five kids, as opposed to a physical class of 30 kids.”
