1 The Hybrid School: Engineering Success With At Risk Students Presented by Mr. Dirk M. Horton

2 What defines at risk students? Individuals who may not reach their full potential because of limited access to quality schooling.

3 Serious harm, I am afraid, has been wrought to our generation by fostering the idea that they live secure in a permanent order of things. … They have expected stability and find none within themselves or in their universe. Helen Keller Life Happens!

4 What else limits students access to quality? Standard Secondary Schedule Traditional Tracking Practices “Dumbed Down” Curriculum Lack of Student Confidence “Diminishing” Curriculum

5 Cincinnati Public Schools ,000 Students and Declining 3 of 19 High Schools Offered AP Classes- 92 took AP English 17 took AP Biology

7 The Hybrid School Solution! Rigorous coordinated online curriculum. Focus on learning rather than curriculum delivery. We “bought time” for new teacher-student relationship!

8 Concepts To Kids! Rigorous online curriculum. Focus on learning rather than curriculum delivery. We “bought time” for new teacher- student relationship! Success builds confidence. Academic success increases academic relevance.

9 What Could We Do? Let’s imagine that a high quality rigorous curriculum was delivered online to each student in my secondary classroom.

10 What Could Students Do? Take responsibility for their learning. Build confidence in their learning. Take the rigor risk. Adjust their program to meet external demands. Seek increased opportunities for peer teaching. Increase participation in post secondary options. Evolve as life long learners.

11 What Could Teachers Do? Help each student learn how to learn! Encourage each student to work at their own pace! Insure that each student masters required content! Employ just in time teaching strategies for each student! Offer access to a wider variety of courses. Establish a high rigor, low risk learning environment. Enrich lab, project, and group work by students. Develop a mentor/coach approach to teaching.

12 What Could School Leaders Do? Minimize issues of equity across classrooms. Expect more teacher time focus on individual students. Eliminate scheduling conflicts for students. Allow smooth transition for transient students. Insure a focus on 21st century skills. Eliminate the need for separate credit recovery programs. Reduce the academic penalty for discipline infractions. Track individual, classroom, department, school academic progress. Increase student productivity during teacher absence. Reduce transition time for new teacher adjustment. Increase student access to quality distance learning. Enhance school to home communication. Evolve a year round school format.

13 Let’s Get It Right This Time! Knowing what we know, how can we continue to do what we do?
