Superintendent Doug Jacobs has been in communication with education leaders in Davis County in an attempt to bring online course offerings to Morgan students.
While the state has accredited coursework for Utah high school students in grades nine through 12, there is nothing state-approved for those in kindergarten through eighth grade, Jacobs said. Davis has developed curriculum for these grades, and is willing to share it without cost, he said.
Morgan’s only cost would be providing a certified teacher to deliver the instruction and provide coordination.
Jacobs said he will be asking parents this spring what their interest is for online classes in the Morgan School District, in an effort to determine what the district will provide. Providing online classes may reduce class sizes and take some demand off stressed facilities.
“It is just one more offering for children to stay home and do online education,” Jacobs said.
