Westview Academy, Capistrano Unified School District's planned online high school, will be delayed a semester. Instead of launching in September, the school will begin the following Spring with limited offerings, grow a bit into summer classes in 2012, then launch in earnest in Fall of 2012.
The reason? The district is still securing a site for the school, but more importantly, developing cyber classes that are acceptable for the UC and CSU systems is challenging.
Robert Nye, the former principal at Dana Hills High who will head Westview, still has plenty to do. Not only does he have to get the new virtual school up and running, he's the principal of CUSD's Adult School.
