T

oday, eLearning is the primary conduit to digital literacy for
learners. If we are truly building education systems that
prepare students for college and career, then our design has
to be driven by a desire to raise capacity for the entire learning
community, nurture a flexible set of competencies, and instill a growth
mindset. Our K–12 online learning program at Palisades was started with
this paradigm as its goal. As a result, the program has developed several
key features to reach this achievement:
• Cyber centers staffed by support teachers provide a creative environ
ment for students.
• Local teachers in our program maintain the community school feel

while meeting the goal of raising global capacity from within.
• Blended learning as part of all secondary classrooms allows time for

inquiry and discovery to be valued and effectively deployed.

Key Lessons
1

eLearning is the primary
conduit to digital literacy
for learners.

2

Blended learning as part of
all secondary classrooms
allows time for inquiry and
discovery to be valued and
effectively deployed.

As we continue to innovate, the cyber academy will include deeper online
professional development, hybrid eLearning models, early graduation
options, student-driven course design, and much more. We are driving this
change to make K–12 relevant and refreshed for our children. This is why
Palisades School District has positioned eLearning at the core of its culture.

“If we are truly building education systems that
prepare students for college and career, then
our design has to be driven by a desire to raise
capacity for the entire learning community,
nurture a flexible set of competencies, and instill
a growth mindset.”
