Some students in Muscogee County are choosing to get their education virtually rather than at school. The Georgia Connections Academy is a free public virtual charter school now offering classes from kindergarten to the 12th grade.
The Oxford family said the online school offered them the flexibility a traditional education could not.
“My husband travels quite a bit. Before our girls got too old we wanted them to be able to travel with their dad and doing the online public school allowed them to take their school work with them as long as they have a computer they can get on to their online live classes,” said Tonya Oxford.
