Evaluation of an Evolving Virtual High School
Reid, Karen M.; Aqui, Yvette; Putney, LeAnn G.
Educational Media International, v46 n4 p281-294 Dec 2009
A recent major trend in distance education is the emergence of K-12 virtual schools. This evaluative case study looked at the issues encountered and lessons learned by one school district during the first year of a virtual high school program. The purpose of the evaluation was to examine what happened when the school district initiated its virtual high school. It addressed such questions as why did the district establish the program, what challenges were faced when the program was implemented, how did the program change, and what types of issues need to be considered for the future.
