COVA Board Statement on Graduation Rate

There has been so much media coverage about online public schools since Colorado’s Senate President Brandon Schaffer called for an emergency audit of our state’s online public schools.

The Senate president is hoping to get these questions answered, among other things, and in my opinion these questions should be asked all across the board and not be limited to online public schools.

We have been enrolled in Colorado Virtual Academy, an online public charter school since 2004.  We are so fortunate here in Colorado to have so many educational options to choose from because we all know that not every student benefits from a cookie-cutter, assembly line education.  My children are receiving a high quality education with cutting edge technology for mastery based learning and an individualized education plan.

This public school option needs to remain a viable option for all of the thousands of students who are thriving in this model.

Please read more about Colorado Virtual Academy in this statement from the Colorado Virtual Academy Board of Directors.

Much more on this topic, but for now it’s time to delve into the Renaissance period with my youngest before her teacher starts live online class.

Disclosure: I am a proud member of the Colorado Virtual Academy Board and honored to be serving.

  1. “these questions should be asked all across the board and not be limited to online public schools.”

    Hear, hear!

  2. I’m with Lori — why not the entire school system in Colorado?

  3. I agree, we are so fortunate to have so many choices for schooling here in Colorado. I also agree with the other comments; they should be checking all of our school systems, not just the online ones!

  4. Couldn’t agree more. Why are the same standard and questions being asked of all schools? My kiddo went to COVA for 8th grade and was accepted top in his class to a prestigious area private school. We had a great experience and I couldn’t have been happier.
