Alabama's distance learning program at Zion Chapel school

Governor Bob Riley met with students from a half-dozen schools across the state. K-through-12th-grade Zion Chapel School was part of the live news conference on Monday

Since taking office, Governor Riley has promoted extended learning. Access Learning, internet teleconferencing, allowing teachers in different parts of the state to offer a variety of curriculum.

At Zion Chapel School, teachers and students feel this is a way to offer classes that are not taught on campus.

"I like it because allows us to see students and have teachers from elsewhere in the state giving instruction on classes we don't have,” says Lindsey Amlong, a senior at Zion Chapel.

Access Learning is supposed to put students in small, rural schools on equal footing with their counterparts in larger school districts.
