This model was proposed by the district and the district funded online school. The model had been piloted by another high school in the district and proved to be successful.
Getting the online program into the schools and funding were the two biggest challenges. The district created a funding opportunity for schools that made it cheaper to share seats throughout the district than for schools to purchase their own seats. Schools then give a flat 7th to pay for the original content courses and 4000.00 per school to pay for the recovery courses.
Work together as a district to create options which support student engagement. Also by working together as a school within a district costs are spread out throughout the district and are substantially less than if a school was to take on this project on their own.
Pine View High School was founded in Southern Utah in 1984 to meet the needs of a quickly growing community near St. George. It now has about 1,200 students with a wide variety of needs that the traditional school model could not meet. The school needed additional course options for students to both pursue interests and recover credit. Graduation rate and motivation for remedial courses were both concerns. The blended program helps to solve these problems by offering high-quality content in a flexible environment.

In 2012-2013 Utah used the Utah Criterion-Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 2 through 11 in Language Arts, in grades 2 through 8 in Math, in grades 4 through 8 in Science and upon completion of certain courses in grades 8 through 11. The CRT is a standards-based testing program, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Utah. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
There are currently no past timeline events for this school.
