Online School Accountability
Join Rob Kremer, director of government relations at Pearson, and John Watson, CEO of the Evergreen Education Group, to explore how states can accurately measure the performance and effectiveness of all types of schools.
In this session we’ll explore the most controversial issues about virtual schools being discussed by policy makers around the country. Are the performance measures used by states to assess the quality of virtual programs accurate and appropriate? What policies can make sure that virtual students are engaged, and to prevent schools from receiving funding for students who are unengaged? Should virtual schools have enrollment criteria to screen out students who are not likely to succeed in a virtual environment?
