Students in some N.J. towns can now take summer school classes online

    The days of kids dragging themselves out of bed early to get to summer school may be a thing of the past, at least in Vineland, New Jersey.

     

    The school board approved a contract enabling students to retake classes that they failed during the semester online, eliminating the need for students to come to the campus.

    According to The Daily Journal, online summer school is not a new concept: Millville public schools offer it as well.

    The classes are being offered by Educere of Ambler, Pa. and will cost parents $175 – $195 per class.
