The biggest obstacles the school has faced include finding and learning how to implement the blended-learning models into the school day, and finding high-quality online content providers for all subjects. The school is still looking into finding additional quality content providers, but the administrators feel they have a solid and workable blended-learning model in place.
Danville Schools is a small district south of Lexington, Ky., with one middle school and one high school. The district first became interested in blended learning in 2009 while it was exploring new ways for teachers to shed some administrative responsibilities and focus on teaching the curriculum. Administrators visited High Tech High School and three blended-learning schools in New York, including School of One and School of the Future. From those visits, administrators knew they wanted to combine project-based learning and blended learning, so they started experimenting with ALEKS and other online programs. An NGLC Wave IV Launch winner, the district used the funding to implement a whole-school blended-learning model at both the middle school and high school during the 2013-14 school year.
