There has been an increase in focus by many districts, serving a wide range of communities, to expand access to quality instruction by opening a virtual school. As virtual programs become more prominent, districts are quickly recognizing that students, the district, and the community all stand to benefit.
Janet Leistner, Director of the Evansville Vanderburgh Virtual Academy, experienced first-hand that building a virtual school is an effective way to increase educational opportunities for students, while also helping the district retain students who, for a variety of reasons, may have sought academic opportunities elsewhere. Leistner recently presented an informative webinar on how to establish, create, and build a successful virtual school. Take a few minutes to listen to the webinar to learn more about what it takes to develop and sustain a virtual program or school.
During the webinar, you'll hear how to:
> Effectively market to your surrounding community.
> Build and support a superior staff adept at engaging students virtually.
> Minimize teachers — and parents — concerns surrounding academic integrity.
> Receive and maintain NCAA accreditation.
In addition, Leistner describes why engaging parents in the learning process leads to increased student success. Watch the webinar.
