The Cobb County School District should provide high school juniors and seniors on-line classes. Colleges and universities offer these virtual classes. On-line instruction is an accepted and successful form of education now. Therefore, the CCSD could save money by reducing infrastructure costs for providing traditional classes to juniors and seniors. These students are usually at least 16 years of age. Thus, they are mature enough to take on-line classes at home.
Additionally, the CCSD should solicit advertisers for the CCSD school buses. City transit systems reduce their expenditures each year by simply placing advertisements on their buses. I think the CCSD should follow this successful business model in order to resolve the current budget crisis. Hence, I believe the CCSD should consider a public corporation business model similar to that of the United States Postal Service and city transit systems.
