Baldwin City Inks Contract for Virtual School

Another virtual school is coming to Kansas.

High school students in Kansas will have one more option for virtual schools come next fall. A unanimous vote by the Baldwin Board of Education approved the contract with Insight Schools Monday night.”

Negotiations between the district and Insight Schools, the virtual school operator, have taken over a year. Students will not pay tuition for the school. The district, for its part, gets some money from the state for each student who enrolls.

The number of students who enroll could make a big difference for the district: “the virtual school enrolled 1,000 students during its first year it would generate a surplus of $7.5 million. However, if the school brought in 500 students, the surplus would only be $1 million.”
