TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - Tupelo Middle School is expanding its online course offerings this fall.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1P0kYuE) a select group of seventh and eighth graders will be allowed to take one of two online-hybrid courses.

For these courses, students will complete assignments online and also meet regularly with a teacher.

Tupelo Middle School Principal Kristy Luse says the classes are being offered so students are able to fit two electives, such as band or drama, into their schedule instead of just one.

A recent mandate that English classes meet twice a day means students only have time to take one elective this year.



The two online-hybrid courses being offered are eighth-grade history and Information and Communication Technology-2.
