OHSU Orientations!

I had the opportunity to attend an Open High School of Utah student orientation meeting this morning. There are loads of students, parents, and teachers here. And the energy in the room is great. The second year of this amazing experiment is beginning! And this year is going to be even better than last year…

Also, as a teaser… we’ve received our unofficial Criterion-Referenced Test scores for last year (these are the end of year, state standardized tests). I can’t blog the specifics until they’re made official, but let’s just say that we’ve succeeded in showing that OER “do no harm.” What do you think – can a completely online, publicly-funded school that commits itself to the exclusive use of OER across its entire curriculum outperform the majority of schools in the state in its very first year of operation? =)
