Implementing Blended Learning Districtwide

Falcon School District 49 in Colorado Springs has implemented blended learning for a wide range of students, resulting in improved student outcomes, more individualized learning and flexible scheduling for students and their families.  Falcon recently opened a dedicated blended learning facility in the community, designed to provide a “Google meets Starbucks” environment – achieving the goal of reducing overcrowding in the traditional schools while providing students with a place where they are excited about learning.

Attend this web seminar to hear best practices about implementing blended learning from administrators in the 15,000-student Falcon School District 49. The district first piloted an online school in 2010 with 59 students, and today operates a diverse and successful online learning portfolio, serving more than 1,400 students.  Hear about an approach to blended learning they have refined over several years that is currently proving to be very effective in helping traditional and nontraditional students excel.

 Topics will include:

  • Lessons learned from Falcon 49’s blended learning implementation
  • Keys to creating a “blended” program with both online and in-person components
  • How to foster the right culture and environment to ensure success
  • See how Falcon 49 created a “Google meets Starbucks” learning environment students love
