In an effort to increase graduation rates and college and career readiness, Spokane Public Schools has developed and implemented blended learning in numerous programs across the district. This is a broad overview of the program, highlighting key aspects, such as those from Track Academy — an alternative school that utilizes blended, personalized learning — and proven results: The district has increased its graduation rate from 60 percent in 2007 to 83 percent in 2014.
