CA Charter Boosts Personalized Learning Options for Homeschoolers
Visions in Education (VIE), the largest public charter home study program in California, has partnered with an Outschool to give VIE’s more than 5,200 K–12 homeschool students across nine Sacramento Valley counties more personalized learning options.
According to information from the online learning company, Outschool provides live, online classes to 12 charter schools and networks in the United States and across 24 countries. Outschool’s online platform is designed to offer “flexible and personal homeschool, independent study and university prep programs at no out-of-pocket expense for families.”
Online classes are led by independent teachers — “many of whom also teaching or have taught in public school,” according to the company. VIE parents and students now have access to Outschool’s online marketplace to utilize wide range of core academics to enrichment and practical skills. The platform has more than 1,000 online classes and supports group video chat and messaging with teachers.
