Call for Examples: Virtual Schools We are working on a second edition of Virtual High Schools: State of the States that will provide a wider view of the field. The first edition, published in Spring 2000, can be found online at: As part of this effort, we are compiling a list of virtual schools. Your assistance is requested in identifying existing and emerging virtual schools not in our initial list. For the purposes of this list, we define a "virtual school" as "an educational organization offering courses designed for K-12 learners through distance learning methods that include Web-based delivery." HYPERLINKED LISTING OF CURRENT SCHOOLS IDENTIFIED Below is the hyperlinked version of our current list. After reviewing the list, you may wish to go to the Virtual School List Survey web site, a site where you can suggest a school NOT YET LISTED or submit a comment, idea or lead about virtual schools.

Using email, chat or support web sites (like many conventional college courses these days) isn't considered to constitute a "web-based course" in the context of this Virtual School List. Computer-based courses using CD-ROMs or software loaded on the student's computer for the main course delivery, another common method, is also not considered a "web-based course" application in this context.

    SEER is a cooperative program that helps state education agencies in their efforts to strengthen the role of environment-based educational approaches in K-12 curricula and systemic reform efforts. SEER's staff coordinates professional development activities and research programs, disseminates educational resource materials and provides technical assistance to the states.
    SEER was established in 1995 with funding from The Pew Charitable Trusts, a national philanthropy with major interests in both environmental and school reform issues.
    The Council of Chief State School Officers administers the grant. Representatives of the participating state education agencies serve as SEER's professional advisory board.
    Program History
    A 1994 study of federal and state education agencies, local school districts, universities and environmental organizations revealed a broad-scale need for better information about strategies that are working to integrate environmental content, pedagogy and principles into formal K-12 educational systems. This study found that EE had achieved only minor integration in systemic education reform efforts. (Click here to see a copy of the report)
    As part of the study, environmental education coordinators from nine state education agencies convened to identify what specific steps needed to be taken to build a better knowledge base for the field. Among their recommendations was the establishment of a national entity that could help facilitate information sharing among the EE coordinators in the various state agencies and identify successful implementation strategies that might be replicated.
