[NHDOE-ETNews] Virtual High School - Webinar for NH Schools - 10/6/10

Higgins, Cathy CHiggins at ed.state.nh.us
Thu Sep 23 13:29:11 EDT 2010


The invitation included below is from the folks at Virtual High School.
It is shared here as an option for online courses for NH students.
Readers should also note that New Hampshire has a virtual charter school
(see www.vlacs.org) which makes it possible for K-12 students residing
within NH to take online courses at VLACS tuition free. This is a
different model than www.GoVHS.org described below. Each model has
particular benefits to consider.

All NH schools are invited to a Virtual High School (FREE) Lunch & Learn
Webinar that will be hosted on Wednesday, October 6, 2010 at noon for
New Hampshire schools' administrators.
The session will help you discover how VHS partners with high schools
and middle schools in New Hampshire and across the world to offer over
140 unique semester-based and full-year online courses. During this
session, you will learn how VHS, a nonprofit organization, provides an
innovative and economical way to expand curriculum offerings to over 650
member schools around the globe. In this virtual meeting, you will be
with other New Hampshire schools' administrators and we will discuss how
our program benefits your school. As part of this virtual session GoVHS
will have lunch delivered to your school!

Founded in 1996, VHS' mission is to develop and deliver standards-based,
student-centered online courses to expand educational opportunities and
build 21st century skills. This past school year, we had over 13,000
students enrolled! Our courses are teacher-led, asynchronous, highly
interactive and semester-based. As a collaborative organization, all of
our teachers and students come from our member schools. 

Our existing member schools can attest to the fact that their membership
in VHS has allowed them to continue offering unique electives and
College Board approved AP courses even in those cases where the
enrollment numbers are very small. Member schools in New Hampshire
include:
Colebrook Academy - Conant High School - ConVal Regional High School -
Farmington High School -  Gorham Middle High School - Groveton High
