California’s Online ‘Bill Of Rights’ Expands High School Digital Learning

The California initiative would impose requirements on online providers that would address concerns about quality:

The courses would need to be certified by the University of California as A-G eligible;

The online provider – which could be a district, charter school, community college, or private provider under contract with a district – would have to be accredited;

The teacher would need to have a California teaching credential or the equivalent if a college instructor;

The online provider would be required to document student work, and students would have to pass a proctored end-of-year exam.

The initiative would leave it to the state Department of Education to create regulations governing payments between providers and districts and verification of work performed. The provider of an online chemistry course could contract with the students’ home districts to offer the lab work and to proctor exams, for example.
