Implementation Q & A

When you first implemented blended learning, why did you choose that particular model? (has your model changed? why?)


Initially, Summit Public Schools tried piloting a Station Rotation model of blended learning for math using Khan Academy. After a year of using that model, school leaders evaluated the data and realized they needed not only to blend face-to-face and online instruction, but to rethink the entire school experience. As a result, they pioneered a self-paced and self-directed learning environment in which they reimagined the roles of the students and the teachers, rethought and redesigned the learning spaces, and removed time-based practices that hindered personalized learning.

School Overview

Summit Public School: Denali (Summit Denali) opened in Fall 2013 to serve the diverse communities of Santa Clara County. Summit's first 6-12 school, Summit Denali will provide the only local public high school option for Northern Santa Clara County families living along the 101 corridor and will help to close the staggering achievement gap in the County. Like other Summit schools, Summit Denali's mission is to prepare a diverse student body for success in a four-year university and to be thoughtful, contributing members of society. Summit's academic approach, which is fueled by a highly personalized blended-learning model, has led to an impressive track record of success. Summit Denali was featured in the Christensen Institute's Blended Learning MOOC.
