Students at Central High School in Phenix City will soon be able to participate in Alabama's ACCESS Distance Learning program.
ACCESS, or Alabama Connecting Classrooms, Educators and Students Statewide, uses online and interactive video conferencing technology to link classrooms and offer coursework to students in schools where certain courses may not be available. The school is one of 85 throughout the state that is supposed to receive the technology later this year.
Gov. Bob Riley and state school superintendent Joe Morton announced earlier this year that all high schools in the state will have ACCESS by the start of the 2009 school year.
