QUINCY (WGEM) -- COVID-19 has changed the way students learn in the classroom. Now with remote learning becoming a norm, Quincy high school is extending its online academy.
Next year students with at least 3-credit hours from QHS could complete their high school career online.
Shelly Cobb is the Edenutiy Coordinator at Quincy high school. She said QHS Online Academy is the perfect match for students that are ready to be on their own.
“There are some students who are just really successful online and really are independent and they learn quickly," Cobb said.
"They are ready to be independent and for those students, they will have that opportunity again.”
Mindy Jackson is a school counselor at QHS. She said they are tweaking the program slightly from this year.
“Starting this summer where it will be more blended and students who are assigned to Edgeunity will need to come into QHS to take their unit tests,” Jackson said.
Cobb said QHS Online Academy offers all courses that are necessary for graduation.
“However if there are courses they want to take that are higher level like our AP Cal or a vocational course that is not available online," Cobb said.
"They can come into the building to take those courses and still continue to be remote.”
