In the last legislative session Utah lawmakers limited the number of courses that can be taken through Utah’s electronic high school options to no more than two credits a year. Students can also earn no more credits than they would if they were taking a full course load at their local high school. By July of 2012, students who had been using ESH to make up courses that they failed will no longer have the option to do so.
The new law does allow students to utilize online classes being offered in state school districts outside of their home area.
