Implementation Q & A

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


Blended learning creates opportunities for students to engage in content that connects standards with 21st century learning modalities.

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


Our biggest challenge is building teacher capacity to utilize the platforms. Additional training and teacher modeling helped support our efforts. Once that was established, we saw an increase in usage.

What's the one piece of advice you'd give to emerging blended-learning programs?


Stay the course. It gets better and students are the winners.

School Overview

Austin College and Career Academy (ACCA) is a newly consolidated high school in the Austin community. ACCA serves to prepare students for college and/or career after high school. Our instructional focus is grounded in the comprehensive approach to academics, pre-engineering and skill acquisition through our partnership with Manufacturing Connect, as well as the social-emotional well-being of students. The work at ACCA is led by one critical question: is it in the best interest of students? At ACCA, we strive to maintain and cultivate the historic TIGER PRIDE!
