Despite the fact that new students come into online K-12 programs in rapidly increasing numbers, existing students are simultaneously switching from one online program to another, or they may be leaving the online program universe altogether. In higher education, this phenomenon is called "swirling." In this pilot study, basic attitudes and program structures among teachers and administrators of K-12 online classes and programs are explored. Drawing from information provided by anonymous survey respondents and professional members of the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) organization, the results from this study identify and share approaches that K-12 online programs and professionals are currently using to meet the holistic and social needs of students as part of their online schooling.
