Harper Schools approves virtual program designed to help kids who "miss out" on diploma

Lead in text: 
30 to 40 students are expected to use the program over the coming year
Harper Creek Community Schools on Monday approved a new virtual program meant to capture kids who "disappear" and miss out on a high school diploma. The Harper Board of Education voted 6-0, with Trustee Jackie LaFever absent, to authorize Superintendent John Severson to apply to the state for a seat-time waiver that would allow the district to receive per-pupil revenue for kids outside of a traditional classroom.
