An Act To Create a Virtual School Managed by the State
CONCEPT DRAFT SUMMARY
This bill is a concept draft pursuant to Joint Rule 208.
This bill proposes to establish a state-managed virtual school, which would:
1. Be designed to allow the State to maintain direct oversight over and apply stringent quality controls to the management of the school;
2. Use current in-state talent and, to the extent possible, rely on content prepared and shared by teachers within the State;
3. Be designed to best deliver services to students and schools in the most cost-efficient manner; and
4. Focus on maximizing the delivery of course content and material to rural schools throughout the State.
