iNACOL Releases New Report on Promising State Policies for
Personalized Learning

Today, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) released a new report: Promising State Policies for Personalized Learning. This report provides state policy exemplars for policy leaders seeking to help enable educators advancing personalized learning environments in K-12 schools.
This report is a valuable resource for state policymakers-whether they are seeking to create conditions in state policy to support personalized learning, moving forward with initiatives to develop personalized learning pilot programs, hosting task forces to explore policy issues and needs, or taking a comprehensive policy approach for supporting advanced personalized learning models. Personalized learning is where instruction is tailored to each student’s strengths, needs, and interests-including enabling student voice and choice in what, how, when, and where they learn-to provide flexibility and supports to ensure mastery of the highest standards possible.State policymakers can become partners with practitioners in identifying and removing system barriers to launching and supporting personalizing learning models to ensure each student’s success. In 2016, states have a historic opportunity to create flexibility to enable powerful, personalized learning experiences with the reauthorization of the federal K-12 education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

Susan Patrick, iNACOL President and CEO, said, “High-quality personalized learning instructional models enable educators to co-design with students and provide life-changing, personalized learning opportunities that prepare them to succeed in college, career and citizenship. The promising policies outlined in this report will help states remove barriers and create conditions to enable and scale personalized learning.”
