Given the rise of distance learning engaging K-12 students and the importance of the role of the Virtual Schooling Site Facilitator (VSSF) to support these students in K-12 schools, it is important to prepare all teachers for this role (Davis & Niederhauser, 2007). This paper reports a scientific experimental study of curriculum for this preparation for use in preservice programs and finds that both the elementary and secondary Virtual Schooling labs of the “Teacher Education Program Goes into Virtual Schooling” project are effective.
