Preparing for Online Learning

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Right now, 31 states allow purely online schools, of which about 275,000 students attended in the 2011-2012 school year, according to “Keeping Pace with K12 Online and Blended Learning,” an annual report from the Evergreen Education Group, which works with districts to improve education outcomes through digital learning. And students nationwide are increasingly taking classes online at least part of the time: In the 2011-2012 school year, nearly 620,000 students were enrolled in single online courses in 28 states, an increase of 16 percent from the year before, the report says.
