Legislation Enacted to Promote Virtual Education in RI | Digital Learning Now

Rhode Island received support to develop and maintain online/virtual education for students because it sees a need

 to achieve specific objectives, including:

– Standard criteria that ensure virtual courses and content for K-12 students are aligned with state content standards;

– Standard criteria for school districts to use to select quality providers of virtual courses and online content;

– Standard criteria that ensure teachers of virtual courses and other online learning activities are appropriately trained and qualified;

– Standard criteria that school districts can use to ensure that all learners in Rhode Island have access to high quality and relevant virtual courses;

– Standard accountability provisions that ensure school districts monitor students enrolled in virtual courses.

The sponsors said they introduced the legislation because Rhode Island is one of several states that have not yet established a statewide policy on virtual education.
