The DuPage County Regional Office of Education (ROE) is starting an initiative to assist districts in the region with online learning. A planning meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon on October 18, 2011 at the ROE’s Center for Professional Learning . The purpose of the initiative is to assist school districts with courses for students, professional development, policy development, and other issues. The first meeting is to determine the direction of this project. All districts should participate (elementary districts, high school districts, and unit districts).
Additionally, the ROE is working on an Administrator Academy for principals about online learning. The first version of the course is expected to be finished by the end of October 2011.
While this program is from the DuPage ROE, school districts from the region (outside DuPage) are invited to attend the meeting and to participate in the project.
