Located in Salisbury North Carolina which is 30 minutes north of Charlotte, NC, Hanford Dole elementary provides educational services for nearly 530 students, 90% of the students receive free and reduced lunch. 2 of the 6 pillars of our educational philosophy is to make decisions based off of best practices and a focus on improving teacher efficacy. We serve a transient population and providing a student centered and personalized education for all our students has been our goal. By visiting schools in Washington D.C. and Horry County SC, we came across blended learning models being implemented in these districts. We were so impressed by the student engagement and the needs being met by all students. In the spring of 2015, we formed a Blended Learning committee to begin school wide implementation. We have adopted the blueprint from 'Blended' by Horn and Staker. Our Blended Learning journey began in the fall of 2015 and you can follow our journey at blendedlearningjourney.blogspot.com
