Georgia’s enrollment in online education for grades K-12 is growing quickly. Georgia Virtual School (GAVS) enrolled more than 33,000 students during that same year. To make learning online even more accessible, the state legislature now allows students in grade 9-12 to enroll in GAVS without approval of the student’s home district, and school board policies must not prevent students from attending their online courses during the school day. Internet options for private and homeschooled students in the state are also growing.
