When superintendent Bill Harbron of the Northern Ozaukee School District in Fredonia, Wisconsin decided it was time to offer more instructional alternatives to students and parents, an e-learning program seemed like the perfect fit. After researching and considering several options, he invited e-learning content provider K12 to present its program to his staff, and they were impressed. They liked the rigorous curriculum, personalized approach, support, and flexibility. In addition, they felt they would learn a lot about their regular curriculum, methods, and assessments in the process of creating an e-learning charter alternative, and they could use what they learned to strengthen their brick-and-mortar schools as well. This article presents six steps to planning for a virtual school. In addition, Earl Crier, principal of Commonwealth Connections Academy, gives a rundown of a typical day on the job of a virtual administrator.
