Students in Michigan cannot enroll in public schools' virtual courses and continue to participate in elective courses at their home campus because the state does not have clear rules that allow two public schools to share the per-pupil state funding for one student. However, students who are home-schooled or attend private schools can take elective courses at these same campuses because of clearly written financing policies. A draft bill commissioned last year by Gov. Rick Snyder aims to address the discrepancy and make sharing students between public schools feasible.
