Abstract

Abstract: This paper is a report on the findings of a study conducted on high school principals in Appalachian Ohio regarding their use and perceptions of online learning. All 134 high school principals in the Appalachian region were invited to participate. The survey response rate was 74%. Data was analyzed with descriptive statistics to identify general patterns and to generate more specific research questions. Principals felt strongly that online learning opportunities: should only be employed as an alternative to the traditional classroom experience, lack important social interaction, require independent, self-motivated learners, and should be facilitated by an adult mentor.
