Today I interviewed the first 10 students who live in Fresno County and are interested in attending the online charter school of Clovis Unified. Based on research and other input, I decided that it is important to interview all students interested in enrolling in the online school. The next step for the 10 students (and parents) I met today will be to complete some online lessons so they can decide if online learning will work for them.
Overall, this process worked well and I enjoyed chatting with the students and their parents. I look forward to meeting the next 100 enrollees. We hope to have 120 9th and 10th graders by August, 2009.
