Case Study

Blended Learning Today

During the 2011-2012 school year, the foundation decided to fund a cohort of five organizations operating one or more blended learning schools. At that time, we also decided to take the opportunity to address this last point: The need for more and better evidence of what does and doesn’t work to help teachers and students. To that end, we asked SRI International to conduct a one-year, quasi-experimental evaluation of these schools’ impact on students’ learning and commissioned FSG to write a series of case studies about each of their models.


These case studies outline our findings with an overview of each school’s background,  instructional model, operational model, financial model and lessons learned.
