Chalk Talk: In-House Cyber-Schools and Charter Schools
The trend towards creating more cyber schools and charter schools is once again proving to be beneficial academically for participating students as well as financially for school districts. Cyber and charter schools provide a unique environment and curriculum design for a wide range of students. They are being used in school districts across the nation for multiple purposes for a wide variety of student populations. Despite the benefits the cyber and charter schools were providing for students, the cost of enrolling a student from their home district was financially burdensome to the home public school district. Until now. Recently, a new trend has emerged with public schools designing and implementing their own cyber and charter schools, taught by in-house district teachers. By creating their own programs and moving away from contractors, school districts are saving funds by retaining their students with their new options.
