HHS approved for distance learning

By Staff
Hartselle High School students will be able to take courses offered through the State's Distance Learning Program later this school year, Dr. Mike Reed, Hartselle City Schools superintendent, told School Board members at a special called meeting Monday night.
Reed said he received word from Gov. Bob Riley's office earlier in the day that Hartselle has been approved for a $85,000 grant to be used to implement the program. A condition of the grant is that the program must be fully operational no later than the beginning of the second semester.
"Distance learning in the state's high schools is something Gov. Riley has been pushing for really hard," Reed said. "I agree that it's a program that can offer far-reaching benefits to our students."
Reed said the money will be used to purchase and install the electronic equipment that is required for a distance learning laboratory and pay a teacher's aide to coordinate the program. "Our students will be able to enroll in classes not offered at the high school but available through any other high school in the state that is set up for distance learning," Reed said. "At the same time classes we offer can be shared with students attending other distance learning schools."
