OMAK —The Omak School District last week became the region’s first home base for a statewide online school. Dozens of students, local and statewide, logged on for the first day of school Friday at Washington Virtual Academy-Omak. Omak Superintendent Art Himmler sees the online school as a way for the 1,700-student district to offer a wide variety of classes it can’t afford otherwise. Online classes also bring in students who need more flexibility than a traditional school can give: Students with autism or social problems, students with medical issues, students who work and American Indian students who miss school for cultural events.
