McCarville Report released the results of the State's examination of Epic One On One. Epic is the state's fastest growing school District. It operates as a charter school, but to the 9000+ students, it's a home-based education which the state fully funds. Even the state-certified tutors are paid by county, state, & federal funding.
The results were positive, over all. This process was completed by the State Office of Educational Quality and Accountability (OEQA)
The OEQA report shows the charter school is doing well in metrics such as staff and parent communications, instructional delivery, business operations and facilities management, and the use of secure and reliable technology.
The report also makes recommendations for EPIC to develop a long-term strategic plan, gain more from third parties and continue to engage students to enter more group learning and interactions.
“When you are experiencing the growth we’ve had, having an independent review like this is extremely helpful. It affirms what you are doing right and sheds light on continuous improvement, which should be the model for any school,” Founder, David Chaney said.
“We are grateful the Statewide Virtual Board allowed us to be the first virtual school in Oklahoma to be evaluated in such a rigorous, objective manner, and we encourage our colleagues in preK-12 public education to work with OEQA on performance, too.” - David Chaney
