This is the look of students’ faces when we said, “Hi! We’d like to help you by giving you flexible learning opportunities through access to hybrid courses. How can we help you?” This moment was from a visit to the AP Music Theory classroom at Santa Ana High School.

What do you see in their faces?

As the bell rang and class ended, we asked anyone with questions or requests to come visit us and share their contact information and what their course need was.

I kid you not.  We soon had a line of students waiting to talk to me, so Jessica divided the line in two and took half of the students, and we conducted quick interviews about their course schedules.  I was amazed at the range of information and needs we learned about in a few short minutes of interviews.

A typical situation from a students’ eyes: “I’m in English 6th period so I can’t take AP Music Theory.”

What I see: If we moved English to 2nd period, and moved 2nd period Geometry into a hybrid course offering (now in development), this student could achieve their dream of access to more music instruction, and actually participate in the conservatory.

This interaction stokes the fire to deliver more hybrid courses.

    I’m so excited about the personalized learning plans that we’re able to create for our SAUSD students. We’re helping fan the flame for their passions by enabling them to fit more “fun and interest” in during their school day.

    The hybrid courses and Team 21 are leading the change in personalized education in SAUSD. Thanks for the hard work guys
