Implementation Q & A

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


School leaders say they have been 'blessed' to have the support of the district superintendents from the school districts partnering with North Country Charter and the primary obstacles they have faced have been related to infrastructure. For example, the platform used to be server-based, which meant that when the school set up its Internet connection in 2008, it had to physically dig a trench and contract a company to come to the school and lay the cable to set up the Internet. The school also has to constantly monitor bandwidth and has been forced on more than one occasion to purchase additional bandwidth to support the program.

School Overview

North Country Charter Academy (NCCA) was established in 2004 through the collaboration of 10 area school district superintendents and their school boards. The consortium of superintendents also served as executive members on the board of the North Country Education Service Agency (NCES). This agency wrote a grant to establish the charter school in two locations: Littleton and Lancaster, New Hampshire. At the time of establishment, NCCA contracted with a company to provide its core academics in which they used an online curriculum. Four years from opening, NCCA took over its own curriculum program and decided to keep the online concept. NCCA researched many options and decided to use the same company, but purchase a broader platform option.
