Implementation Q & A

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


Our biggest challenge was professional development. Professional development requires at least six months to cover the alignment of software with instruction, data-driven instruction, teaming, sharing data, reconfiguring the schedule, and more. It is also important to give teachers time to evaluate the model and to cultivate parent buy-in.

School Overview

Washington Elementary School is a public K-4 school that served 260 students in Prescott Unified School District of Arizona. Washington prided itself on its blend of innovative instruction and traditional values, which it especially fostered in its three academic/technology labs. In 2015, Washington received the Golden Bell Award from the State of Arizona for innovative education programs. Due to the district restructuring plan, Washington closed at the end of the 2014-15 school year. The school's blended-learning program will be continued at Taylor Hicks Elementary School in the same district.
