An online high school in Academy School District 20 will shift its focus to what the program creator believes is the next generation of online learning. “Initially, the philosophy behind online education was location – the idea that the student could do school from anywhere – and we built systems around that,” said Nathan Gorsch, principal of Academy Online High School. Now, the online movement is turning toward personalized learning as its main strength, he said, and his school will pilot a program in that direction. “We are going to give it our best attempt at what we think education can become,” Gorsch said. “Instead of building a system and fitting kids in, we’re building our system around the kids.”
