Cutting costs through partnership in US cyber schools

The US state of Pennsylvania is witnessing the emergence of new partnerships that help cut costs for students attending one of the state's 13 cyber schools. A report in eSchool in late July highlighted the partnership which brings together The Learning Lamp and In-Shore Technologies who are now offering Blended Learning Technologies (BLT), which provides curriculum, teachers, hardware, and tech support for half the cost districts pay when a student enrolls in one the state’s 13 cyber charter schools.

Currently, when parents enroll their child in a cyber charter school, the resident district no longer has any responsibility for the education of that child, but is responsible for paying that child’s tuition. That can range from $10,000 to $18,000 depending on the needs of the child. Read the full article in eSchool News.
