In 30 minutes, teacher Erika Montgomery has wrapped up the weekly “live lesson” over the computer connection. Preston, 7, leaves his seat at the kitchen counter in the family’s home in Walla Walla to find a spot on one of several couches in the living room. Preston is a first-grader enrolled in Washington Connections Academy online public school. The no-tuition, virtual school was approved in Washington state for grades K-12 in 2016 and currently serves grades K-10; grades 11 and 12 will be added later. The parent organization, for-profit Connections Education, was founded in Baltimore in 2001. The program is currently available in 28 states.–schools-on-the-rise-in-washington/article_a0815962-32de-11e7-a376-3381c51b2868.html
