This report provides a detailed look at how mentoring occurs in various virtual school business models. All 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, have supplemental and/or full-time K-12 online programs, and teacher mentoring structures exist in many of these.

The mentoring strategies vary based on specific school criteria. For example, if the virtual school is a supplementary, district-run program, the teachers might be full-time, face-to-face teachers who are teaching one online course per semester. This mentoring program may not be as extensive as one for a teacher who is 100% full-time in a fully online school.
