However, with every technology change a large budgetary item also comes. Providing online education courses within public school districts is not cheap. Currently, many public school districts have been experiencing heavy budgetary problems. Has Pennsylvania’s state budget problems affected public schools’ efforts to go online? The purpose of this study was to examine the status of fully online and blended learning environments in Northeastern Pennsylvania K-12 public schools, as well as provide indicators of change.
