The Keeping Pace with K-12 Online Learning report is now out, with an overview of the latest policies, practices and trends affecting online learning programs across all 50 states. I was honored to serve on the sponsor committee on behalf of Blackboard, providing guidance and leadership on this year’s publication.

Here is some top line information from this year’s report.

  • 48 states provide online learning opportunities but no state provides the full range of online learning opportunities identified in the report.
  • While K-12 online learning continues to grow rapidly, the shape and pace of growth is uneven between states.
  • 450,000 students are currently enrolled in state online programs
  • 200,000 students are currently enrolled in full time online programs
  • The fastest growing segment of K-12 online learning is in individual school districts. Keeping Pace estimates that 50% of school districts in the nation either have an internal online learning program or are in the planning stages to implement. 1.5 million students participate in district online learning programs.
