Abstract

To conduct a needs assessment for the implementation of a virtual school for the Victoria Christian Education Society (VCES). VCES is the governing body for Pacific Christian School (PCS). It is the intent of this research to present the VCES Board and administration a recommended timeline and format of delivery for a virtual school based on the needs assessment outcomes.

The rapid development and decreasing costs of communication technologies (microcomputers, Internet, World Wide Web, satellite links) are affecting the delivery of education and expanding its potential audience. Students can access any part of the world to explore geography, history, culture, religion and more. Teachers can access numerous resources to assist them in teaching their subjects and topics. Teachers and students can communicate orally and written to peers in different countries.

Pacific Christian School (PCS) is considered a large independent school with a student population of 730 (K-12). PCS serves families that attend a variety of churches in the Greater Victoria area. As a large independent school, PCS is expected to be a leader among its fellow Christian schools in this new information age.
