Combining more than 130 years of online and blended learning operational experience, the Virtual School Leadership Alliance is an association of the chiefs of some of the most innovative virtual schools in the US. Consisting largely of leading state virtual schools, and several outstanding consortia, the member organizations serve over a quarter of a million online course enrollments annually, provide their districts and students with over 2,200 active, highly-qualified teachers trained in online instruction, supply blended learning services to their constituents, and conduct research to validate the value of online learning.
Each year the Leadership Alliance chiefs explore topics critical to providing high quality online and blended learning by examining current research, trends and analysis in digital learning, as well as sharing resources, services, and expertise. Virtual School Leadership Alliance (VSLA) also partners with researchers and educational organizations to gather and provide data across more than a dozen states represented by the VSLA.
Virtual School Leadership Alliance members leverage many ways, including but not limited to program operational costs and budgeting, professional development for member executives and staff, content and technology sharing, short- and long-term strategic planning, career and college readiness, board development and stakeholder communication, developing communications and marketing strategies and IT infrastructure.
