Beyond Brick and Mortar Podcast: Laurel Springs School on Personalization, Flexibility, and Community-Building in Virtual Learning

In this first episode of TLA's "Beyond Brick and Mortar" podcast series, which features leaders of established virtual and hybrid learning programs from across the U.S. as they discuss what makes their programs a success – and what they had to learn along the way, we chat with Megan Palevich, former Head of School at Laurel Springs School. Learn about their fully virtual K-12 program that emphasizes personalization and one-to-one work between students and teachers, flexible schedules to accommodate learners whose schedules or needs don't align with traditional seat-time requirements, and a strong community among staff, students, and families.
