PdC Public continues to study the potential of starting an online charter school. There is a need to do this right, as the increasing amount of data is starting to point out that many (most?) online programs are not very effective, at least not when compared to quality schools.
This webinar information is based on survey results that point out some good information. However, (I am getting on my soapbox and stating a personal opinion) as with all data on online, and charter schools in general, this is quasi data based on perceptions and not hard fact. Anyway, it does give some insights as to potential issues/problems and some, (I guess you could say common sense) factors that are necessary to successful programming.
When prompted, PdC Staff and School Board Members may put in my e-mail address
