Register Today for Upcoming NACOL Webinar

While there is a cost associated with this and the archives available after the fact are usually free, if I were going to pay for one of these, this is probably one of the ones I would bite the bullet for.

"Keeping Pace: A Review of State-Level
Online Education Policy and Practice"

Moderator: John Watson, Evergreen Associates Consulting

Craig Butz, Odyssey Charter Schools
Allison Powell, Clark County School District
Julie Young, Florida Virtual School

The annual report Keeping Pace with K-12 Online Learning reviews the growth of online learning across the country, with a focus on state-led programs and state-level policy. Keeping Pace, is sponsored and guided by Clark County School District, Connections Academy, Florida Virtual School, Illinois Virtual High School, Odyssey Charter Schools, Texas Education Agency, and Virtual High School. In 2007 Keeping Pace conducted its first ever program survey across all types of online program, including state-led, consortia, district programs, and online charter schools. Results of the survey and state policy research demonstrate that the number of online programs of all types and number of online students continue to grow rapidly. At the same time, the rapid growth and proliferation of program types risk creating a backlash by policymakers if programs are not able to both ensure and assure quality. The lead author and representatives from three of the sponsoring partners will discuss findings from across the country and applicability to their own organizations and to the future growth of online learning, including:
  • Results of the comprehensive survey of all types of online programs
  • The growth in numbers of online students and programs
  • Significant new policy and practice developments across the country, including new programs, legislation, and state audits of online programs
  • How the evolution of policy and practice is affecting key issues in online learning including funding, teaching, curriculum, professional development, and accountability
