In 2006, Jeffco Public Schools in Colorado was looking for a way to address the staggering number of students that were failing classes as well as provide options for students that wanted to learn in a way that modeled their digital lives. The district also wanted to expand educational options for the hundreds of students that were leaving the district each year to learn online elsewhere.
In order to meet these needs, Jeffco Public Schools turned to Blackboard to expand educational offerings with online courses.
Jeffco Public Schools shares how Blackboard software helped accomplish the following:
Develop a five-year road map for online learning,
Address the districts withdrawal and failure rate,
Provide online learning opportunities without students having to leave their school,
Launch a statewide online school and,
Use online learning as a vehicle for organizational change.
