Implementation Q & A

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


Station rotation made the most sense as we had limited technology.

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


Helping teachers see the value of implementing this type of learning and providing them with enough support to make it meaningful and helpful as teachers.

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


Once our teachers used the programs with fidelity, they could see the benefit. I tried to support through weekly printouts, incentives and on-going professional development.

Select up to two focus areas you feel that you demonstrate leadership in, and tell us why here:


I felt I was able to get complete buy in by supporting teachers, rewarding efforts, and providing data. At this point, I do not need to do this as teachers have made it a part of their practice.

School Overview

Midas Creek is part of a very involved community of parents and students. We have an active PTA that works hard to provide amazing support to the students and staff. We were on a year-round calendar for the first 9 years, but in 2017-18, we transitioned to a traditional calendar. We have many programs and offerings such as orchestra, choir, before school Khan Academy/Imagine Learning Math, gifted pull out (once a week, 4-6th), gifted math enrichment (M-Th, 30 minutes), Mountain Lion Award k-6, music specialist and a great literacy pull out for tier II using SPIRE. We participate in the STEM Fair, Battle of the Books, Geography Bee, and Monster Math.
