Blended Learning Success: Positively Impacting Every Student

In its new series, “Research: Outcomes of Blended/Online Learning Programs,” the Evergreen Education Group takes an in-depth look at successful blended and online programs across the nation to examine the best practices that have created tangible results. We are pleased to share with you some highlights from the Crater Lake Charter Academy case study.

Blended Learning Success

In only their second school year in operation, more than 200 students are currently enrolled at Crater Lake Charter Academy (CLCA), a blended learning comprehensive charter school located in Eagle Point, Oregon, serving grades K through 12.

Six months after opening its doors, CLCA began the accreditation process through AdvancED, an accrediting agency that conducts onsite external reviews of pre-K–12 schools and school systems. As part of their accreditation survey, they questioned CLCA elementary and secondary students and their parents. Below are the especially positive results from the survey where 94 percent of elementary and secondary students agreed that “teachers help me prepare for the next school year.”

I’ve found that when you start calling a group a TEAM, magic happens. Then, use a survey tool so everyone can vote on which team name they like the best. After the name is decided upon, start using it in course announcements and emails that are sent to the group. For example, we named our Utah team “The Utilizers…”
