Implementation Q & A

What was one of your biggest challenges when going blended, and how did you overcome it?


The biggest hurdle our school faced was access to high quality bandwidth. Poor Internet speeds and weak wireless signals led to lost instructional time. Before expanding our blended-learning programs this year we spent a great deal of time building our Internet infrastructure.
