More families in Eau Claire schools are looking to send their kids to school online.
The city’s school board says enrollment at Eau Claire’s Virtual School is now up to 120 kids. Last year, enrollment was just 40 kids. The Virtual School is its own program, and is different from the online classes many kids took last year during the coronavirus lockdown. Virtual School principal Laura Schlichting says some families have realized their kids just do better online. She says there are still open spots in the Virtual School for this fall.
