Many of our projects don’t fit neatly into any of the above categories, although they are no less important to us. Examples of these projects include:
State Virtual School Alliance
We are facilitating a collaborative group of state virtual schools working together to share information around best practices and common challenges.
The Trujillo Commission was formed by the Donnell-Kay Foundation in response to the Colorado state audit of online schools. The commission held public hearings, interviewed online learning leaders, and created recommendations that formed the basis for the subsequent law that was passed in Colorado to allow the expansion of online learning. We provided support to the Commission’s research and reporting efforts.
Wyoming Department of Education
In Wyoming we held a similar role with the Wyoming Distance Education Task Force, which proposed recommendations that subsequently were passed by the legislature to create the Wyoming Switchboard Network.
