  • My daughter did it for a year. It was so easy for her. All I had to do was mark her attendance. I did 5th gr. with my son and that was difficult but we didn't start at the beginning of the year and I found out he wasn't ready for 5th gr. math. He also had an IEP, so the teacher went through his lessons and took out quite a few of them. It made it easier after that. He is doing this .year online. He is in 7th gr. Having been through it before I am better prepared. Good Luck!

  • I don't but wished I had. My oldest son is a Senior this year. His schedule consists of 2 classes. He has computer graphics at 12:10 and English 4 at 1:00. He only needs 1.5 credits to graduate. Had he did it online, he could finish early in the morning and have his day freed up to get a decent job.
