New virtual school
Lawrence Virtual School is now enrolling students for its inaugural school year. Students learn at home with a parent guiding the daily lessons. Though lessons are delivered on-line, most of the students' work is completed away from the computer with provided materials. Certified teachers provide guidance, support, accountability and advice. Lawrence Virtual School is a public school, so there is no tuition. Minimal enrollment fees will be assessed (Kindergarten: $43.50/year and Grades 1-8: $97/year). The Kansas State Department of Education on March 9, 2004, approved charter status for the Lawrence Public Schools, USD 497, to create a virtual school. For information, contact Gary Lewis, principal, 110 McDonald Drive, Lawrence, KS 66044, (785) 832-5000, ext. 624.
