Online school seeks local students

February 5, 2002

RACINE — Area residents will be introduced to a new type of charter school Tuesday evening, when representatives of an organization known as Wisconsin Connections Academy hold an open house at the Racine Public Library at 7 p.m.

The group is setting up a virtual school and is seeking a charter from the Appleton Area School District. If the district approves the proposal, the school will open this fall. The organization has applied for necessary recognition from the state Department of Public Instruction.
