District 203’s and 204’s online coursework is getting more personalized.
Expanding Learning Opportunities
That’s due to their board’s recent votes to dissolve the intergovernmental agreement of Expanding Learning Opportunities, or eLo. It provides pooled online high school courses between three area school districts.
The eLo consortium between District 203, District 204, and Wheaton Warrenville District 200 will dissolve, but each district will continue to provide online learning experiences for students independently.
“Our three districts are in three different places regarding where we’re at with online and blended learning,” said Superintendent Dan Bridges. “Now that we’ve kind of grown up together in this space all three of us are kind of ready to spread our wings and go off independently.”
The decision was made collectively, to provide coursework based on the needs of students at their schools.
The consortium formed in 2014 and will run through the spring 2020 semester.
District 200 also voted for the dissolution.
