On Wednesday, April 8, 2015, iNACOL presented a Leadership Webinar featuring the authors of the recently released report Performance-based Funding and Online Learning: Maximizing Resources for Student Success.
The webinar presenters will discuss the report highlights and examine performance-based funding models. The report provides an overview of performance-based funding concepts while exploring policy considerations. An important contribution of the report includes adequacy studies and new research on costs as well as a detail of funding models for online learning. Steve Kossakoski provided an overview of the statewide performance-based funding model from the New Hampshire Virtual Learning Academy Charter School in practice today. There was time dedicated to having a discussion with presenters and the audience on the pros, cons and important elements for policy considerations after the presentations.
Susan Patrick, iNACOL; Amanda Brown and Justin Silverstein, Augenblick, Palaich and Associates, Inc.; and Steve Kossakoski, New Hampshire Virtual Learning Academy Charter School provided an overview of the guidance for state policy makers considering performance-based funding options in education with highlights of a successful model in practice.
