Texas III

Description

In 2017, British Columbia began a review of the model that it uses to fund K-12 digital learning. This session explores how digital learning funding across Canada. Two of the three models overlap with common US models (i.e., supplement per fee courses & FTEs). However, the third model – direct funding and/or resourcing district-based digital learning. This session will explore these three models, with a specific focus on the strengths – and challenges to implementing – this third model.
