School District Drops Pursuit of Online Education Program

The Kirksville R-III School District is no longer looking to offer comprehensive online education. Last fall, the Board of Education for the district voted unanimously to begin a relationship with FuelEd – a company that provides digital curriculum, technology, instruction, and support for classes in several states. Superintendent Dr. Damon Kizzire said that after negotiating on a potential contract with the organization, it was determined that the partnership would not be financially beneficial to the district.
