Implementation Q & A

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

Snow Canyon High School: Students used the online courses for additional options to create schedules where they could take time out of their school day to enroll in college courses. Online courses free up a student's schedule so that students have more options and flexibility.

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

Getting 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.

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

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.

School Overview

Snow Canyon High School was founded in 1994 to meet the demands of a growing community near St. George, Utah. It had a high graduation rate, but school leaders wanted students to have more options for original-content courses, as well as recovery-content courses, to help students make the most of their high school academic experience.
