Thursday, April 18, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

Falcon Virtual AcademyFalcon Virtual Academy, a brand new, state-of-the–art facility designed to engage a wide variety of student populations, recently opened in Colorado Springs, CO. A classic example how blended learning offers both the technology to allow students to learn at their own pace as well as the face-to-face instruction that students are accustomed to, Falcon Virtual has demonstrated success, with an 89.5% graduation rate and a dropout rate of less than 2%. At the core of Falcon Virtual is the award-winning K¹² online curriculum, which incorporates extensive research and usability testing to effectively present instruction online.

In this presentation, Innovation Leader/Assistant Superintendent Kim McClelland and Falcon Virtual Academy principal David Knoche will discuss the challenges that District 49 was facing and how the implementation of blended learning led to student and district success. They will take you on a virtual tour of the facility and explain how the online curriculum is engaging students in new and innovative ways.
