Online High School Education
The 2011 General Legislative Session saw the passage of SB 65, which created the Statewide Online Education Program. It has been effective since July 1, 2011, and was enacted as Title 53A, Chapter 15, Part 12 of the Utah Code.
The Statewide Online Education Program allows eligible high school students to earn credit by taking online courses. For the 2011-2012 school year, students can receive up to two credits through the program.
Many school districts have begun offering online courses, such as the Jordan School District and Nebo School District. Some have even implemented their own online education programs, such as Provo School District's eSchool.
For information on all Utah school districts that are offering online courses, visit the State Office of Education's Public Education Online page.
