San Juan Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES), Colorado

Evergreen worked directly with San Juan BOCES (serving nine rural school districts) to open a new online school (2011) — The Southwest Colorado eSchool. The project extended over eight months from the initial strategic planning meetings with representatives from all member districts, through operational planning, culminating with the launch of the online school in August. Primary project deliverables included:

  • development of a strategic plan for launch and expansion of a full-time and supplemental online program
  • scheduling and project management
  • guidance on content acquisition
  • research and consulting on technology choices, including LMS and SIS
  • recruitment, hiring, and mentoring for a new online principal
  • development of a three-year budget
