Fischler School Offers Free Virtual School Summit Webcasts

The NSU community is invited to participate in the Virtual School Education Summit, sponsored by the Fischler School of Education and Human Services. The Summit will provide Florida superintendents and school leaders with a forum to learn about plans to meet the recent Florida Department of Education mandate (Rule 6A-6.0981 – “The School District Virtual Instruction Program”) to establish K-8 and 9-12 virtual schools in each school district.

The Summit will be a free series of Webcasts transmitted online on Friday, May 29 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It will include presentations by and discussions with school administrators and educational leaders who will share their strategies, techniques, and experiences for developing virtual school instructional programs in Florida school districts.

The Summit will include keynote presentations and a series of targeted, concurrent sessions that will cover topics such as vendor selection, teaching online, financing virtual schools, and legal and ethical issues in managing a virtual school.

Each participant will also receive a collection of resources including a white paper titled, “Virtual Schools: What Educational Leaders Should Know.”
