On March 8 the Sussex County School Boards Association (SCSBA) held one meeting in two locations to enable board members to experience the benefits of long distance learning. Long distance learning could allow school districts an opportunity to offer students a wider variety of courses and to provide more professional development for staff at minimal cost.
The entire meeting was devoted to school districts finding ways to use scarce resources.
