DANVILLE — Members of the Danville school board approved the creation of the “Danville Cyber Academy” at their May 14 board meeting. The cyber school will offer online courses in addition to ones in the school districts. It can also provide remediation, academic enrichment and additional course selection for district students.

The district hopes to use the cyber school to bring back district students who left to enroll in online and charter schools.

“We currently have 50 students out that we will be looking at,” said Cheryl Latorre, district superintendent.
