Caddo Parish School Board approves virtual high school
SHREVEPORT - A new virtual academy is coming to northwest Louisiana.
The Times reports the Caddo Parish School Board unanimously voted to create a virtual high school at a special session Tuesday.
According to board documents, the public high school would open this upcoming school year with an enrollment ranging from 50 to 70 students and will eventually allow students from other neighboring parishes to attend.
