California’s Knightsen School District Denies Proposed Online School

Ball pane hammer

Mercury Online Education wanted to open a K-12 school in Knightsen. But, the five-member board at Knightsen rejected the proposal.

“The online school would have been funded by the state at the same level as conventional public schools, and there would be no cost to students, each of whom would have received a free laptop.”

“We didn’t feel it would financially help our district,” trustee Liesel Williams said. “It didn’t seem like a sound program.”
