Collaborative Partnerships with Michigan Virtual
Team up with us to offer local, online learning!
Michigan Virtual has created a collaborative teaching partnership with districts to reduce the cost of delivering online experiences. Teachers from local districts will be trained by our staff to be highly-qualified online instructors, implementing our top-quality online courses for the school district. This partnership reduces the cost of Michigan Virtual teachers and lets the district augment the number of students in a course when you have fewer than the maximum in a physical classroom.
Case study: Read about how our collaborative partnership with St. Clair County RESA helped us reach our common goal of increasing student engagement and achievement through the implementation of developing personal relationships, effective feedback, motivation and other best practices in an online environment.
Core goals for collaborative partnerships
- Provide high school students in local districts with the ability to complete their education in-district using quality online courses taught by local educators.
- Develop a school or countywide process to identify current and future online course needs/wants while implementing a practical solution to manage online course enrollment activities for eligible students.
- Recruit and train local educators in the pedagogy of online instruction to teach sections of Michigan Virtual courses to local students.
- Develop a district or countywide communications program to promote online course offerings through a co-branded partnership between the local district, Intermediate School District, or Regional Educational Service Agency and Michigan Virtual.
