Crosslake Community School looks to offer online high school next fall


Crosslake Community School (CCS) students might soon have the opportunity to continue their education in Crosslake all the way to graduation.

School Director Todd Lyscio said CCS, which is currently K-8, continues to grow, and expanding the school to offer high school courses has been in the works for some time.

“We have a desire to expand the school to an online format,” he said. “We’ve developed a model that’s not as common as a typical online (program).”
