High School of Business Pilots Online Delivery

Students in a group of small rural Colorado schools will collaborate online as they work on business projects. The twelve schools in the Northeastern part of the state will unite though their Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES). BOCES provide specialized educational services to school districts. In the case of High School of Business, each individual school is too small to have the number of students necessary for the program. By banding together, the students can work together online via Skype, Google collaboration tools, and other software. Teachers take turns serving as lead teacher of the courses while their counterparts monitor the students.

Says High School of Business Program Director Lisa Berkey: “We’re excited to work with NE BOCES to bring accelerated business curriculum to students in rural Colorado. MBAResearch will work closely with the schools to assist and learn from their experience.”

Teachers from NE BOCES will attend their first High School of Business Training Institute this June and then use the 2013/14 school year to plan. Courses will begin for students in the fall of 2014.
