This health-focused high school model sheds traditional classrooms, grade levels, and schedules in favor of personalized online content, small-group work, a continuum of mastery from beginner to professional, and comprehensive student support. Rethinking the instructional and support staff, Cornerstone Charter Health utilizes Relationship Managers, Relevance Managers, Rigor Managers, and Success Coaches to provide ongoing support and guidance as students navigate through their learning.
The two-page grantee profiles from Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) provide factual information about the secondary school and postsecondary degree program designs awarded grants under NGLC's third wave of funding, which focused on two areas, "Breakthrough Models for College Readiness" and "Breakthrough Models for College Completion." Each profile describes what makes each model "breakthrough" and offers important information about the instructional and financial models, student demographics, hardware and software choices, and contact info. These profiles serve to illustrate the innovations of these new blended and online models, with practical details of interest to those starting a new school or degree program.
NGLC accelerates educational innovation through applied technology to dramatically improve college readiness and completion in the United States. To learn more about NGLC and the grantees it supports, visit nextgenlearning.org.
