On-line High School Planned In Fremont County

Ft. Washakie, WY – A proposed on-line charter school in Fremont county could eventually serve high school students from across Wyoming. Fremont County District 21 Superintendent Karl Berlin says his district currently has no high school. He says the plan calls for serving at-risk students or whose who may have dropped out of his school district. Berlin says his district already has most of the technological infrastructure in place to handle the virtual school. He says there may be some additional costs, but it would be cheaper than constructing a building. Berlin says officials from his distict have visited a few on-line high schools around the country to determine if such an operation could work in Fremont county. He hopes to have the new school open by next fall.
