Keeping Pace 2011 is here!

On behalf of our 14 sponsors, the Evergreen Education Group is proud to announce the release of Keeping Pace with Online Learning: A Guide to Policy and Practice 2011. All attendees at the iNACOL Virtual School Symposium will receive a print copy, as well as an electronic version on the flash drive included in the bags received at registration. The full report is also available for download on our website, along with many of the graphics. State profiles on the website will be updated in the next few days. We’d like to take a moment to acknowledge our sponsors, many of whom are here at VSS and will be participating in the Keeping Pace presentation and / or panel sessions. The sponsors have the opportunity to brainstorm, research, write, and edit with us throughout the six-month report development process, and it is with their insight that this report is able to break new ground each year and remain relevant. We are incredibly grateful to them for their many avenues of support.

Thank you to our sponsors, and to everyone throughout the country—state departments of education contacts, program leaders, and online and blended learning thought leaders—who contribute incredible amounts of data and analysis each year. This report could not exist without you.
