    And now they can have their "principal on special assignment" to help him out!!

    Salterview Academy??

    Now maybe they can come up with a better name.

    Where did this information come from? It's not on the district website and wasn't in this week's update. ??? Just curious.

    Maybe Marcus doesn't know about this.

    I hope that when the on-line high school is underway, CUSD will consdier allowing all high school students in CUSD to access UC's on-line classes for high school students. This would be a great way for students to add to course offerings at their local high schools and best of all, the courses are free and approved for admission to UC - http://www.uccp.org/. It also seems like a good way to develop courses for the online high school as well.

    great idea, socmom.

    This way CUSD can offer AP level classes without full time teachers and still pocket the ADA funding.

    Remind me again, why we need real teachers in actual class rooms?

    The on-line classes are supposed to be offered under the supervision of qualified, certificated teachers. Keep in mind that most of the science classes require wet labs, etc.,that have to be taught in person, and that on-line classes don't teach themselves but require a teacher to interact and guide the students through the material. It is just another way of delivering course content that still uses live teachers, just like the Westview Academy will.

    I guess I am guilty of looking at this issue from the persepective of the students, who might appreciate being able to take on-line classes while in high school just like they will when they get to the UCs and CSUs.

    they can come up with a better name.
