Class could look totally different for some New Milford high school students.

There would be not blackboard, no chalk, no classroom.

New Milford's school board decided to back a proposal to provide some online high school courses for credit. The policy committee will review the proposal before sending it back for a final vote.

The proposed policy is the right approach to new technology, building in certain requirements to make sure students still fulfill the district's academic standards and attendance policies, board members said.

Students would be able to consider online courses and those who wish to enhance their curriculum could take as many courses as they could afford.
