St. Martin Parish Offers Virtual Program
BREAUX BRIDGE, La. (AP) — Korey Louis and geometry didn't jibe during his sophomore year at Breaux Bridge High, so the teen is revisiting concepts like translations and reflections this summer, but in a class of one.
The Advocate reports Louis is one of about 30 students taking self-paced, online courses in St. Martin Parish School System's virtual summer school at the district's virtual technology center in Breaux Bridge.
The school system launched the virtual summer school program in 2012 after years without a summer academic option for students because of low enrollment in the past.
As part of the program, students take online courses taught via lessons recorded by certified teachers. Students can pause and rewind the lessons as they need and move through the content at their own pace.
