Implementation Q & A

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

The Academy model was chosen for a select group of students to provide additional support, beyond our typical credit recovery virtual lab program, where content area teachers are at a distance. The Academy provides onsite immediate access to content area teachers for intervention and guidance. Using a school-within-a-school model allowed students to focus on curriculum, without a bell schedule.

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

We were having success in the school's credit recovery program, but our Academy students needed more than a one period a day opportunity to recover and earn credits. However the flexibility was a challenge for students. Establishing an individualized academic education plan, with start and end dates of courses, along with the teacher mentorship program has helped students to take ownership of their learning paths.

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

It's important to have policies and practices in place so that both students and teachers know their role in a flexible environment. Review and make changes as needed. In our second year we were much more structured and have seen results with more credits earned in the early going.

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

The Academy has redefined the roles of the student learner and the instructional practices of our teachers. The relationships with students within the Academy and among staff is very strong. The school-within-a-school approach has helped build a community of "on-time" graduation.
