Enacted in October 2013, Section 21f of Michigan’s State School Aid Act (MCL 388.1621f1) established that public school pupils in 6th through 12th grade (with the consent of parent or legal guardian if the student is under 18 or if the pupil is an emancipated minor) may enroll in up to two online courses during an academic term (semester or trimester). Online course offerings may be selected either from the syllabi available within the district catalog of online courses at the pupil’s resident district or from those available in the statewide catalog of online courses maintained by Michigan Virtual. The statewide catalog houses the online course syllabi that are made available by Michigan school districts, public school academies, intermediate school districts (ISDs), community colleges, and those provided by the Michigan Virtual for Students.
