Online Charter

The state's two virtual charter schools had a rough go of it their first year open. Both online schools received Ds on state school report cards. 

Students at North Carolina Virtual Academy and North Carolina Connections Academy struggled last year. Reading scores were better, but in math only about a third of students at both schools made passing grades on state standardized tests.  And neither school's students made enough gains throughout the year for the charters to make what's called "growth."
