LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Rick Snyder signs legislation that lifts the cap on the number of cyber charter schools in the state. The law also sets an enrollment limit of two-percent of student population. It also removes the requirement that cyber school students must have been previously enrolled in a public school.
Once accepted to a cyber school program, a student will be issued a computer by the school and the school will be responsible for subsidizing the cost of Internet access. Governor Snyder says "empowering more parents and students with the option to enroll in cyber charter schools and attend college level courses increases not only their educational opportunities, but also their potential for success."
