Students attending two dozen virtual schools run by K12 will not be able to count the courses they take at those schools toward NCAA eligibility, the NCAA has decided. The schools affected include both online-only schools and blended learning schools. This means that high school athletes wishing to to participate in sports at Division 1 or Division 2 universities will not be able to attend those two dozen schools.
