How can schools begin to address all their students’ individual learning needs? Blended learning is increasingly part of the answer schools consider—but what about a broader rethinking of how schools are organized and staffed?
At Public Impact, we’ve been working with the Clayton Christensen Institute to take a close look at eight schools/school networks around the country using innovative staffing models to personalize learning—district, charter, and private schools. We’ve just published the first of two sets of short profiles of these schools. The profiles, many with accompanying videos, show the challenges they aim to address and their early years of staffing innovations.
In the coming months, we will publish a second set of profiles and a white paper connecting the dots and analyzing the patterns of their experiences.
We focused on schools or school networks serving disadvantaged populations that achieved better-than-typical student learning and provided students with more personalized experiences while using new staffing models and blended learning.
