Good morning, Nashville. It’s no secret that Metro Schools are struggling a bit, and now they’re trying to attack the 73% graduation rate by creating a program to help incarcerated students finish their education. The “virtual high school” program will last anywhere from six weeks to a semester and will evaluate them to find out what their needs are and work with them to get what they need. The online program will also allow other students to take AP courses that may not be offered at their particular school. The total cost for the program is expected to be around $600,000.
