The Relationship Strategy in virtual schools
167% YOY increase in enrollments
35% increase in retention in first year
25% reduction in attrition rates prior to October 1
Lowest number of student absentees for the first day of the new semester in the history of the school
These are some of the results from building relationships with prospective families, and existing families from the virtual schools I have had the privilege of serving these past two years.
When we put the teacher-student relationship in the middle, and not just the student, we are then on the right path of fulfilling the promise of virtual schools.
