HHS Blended Learning Program Draws International Interest

Huntley High School has hosted several site visits by school districts seeking to learn about the success of its nationally recognized Blended Learning program.

But October saw a first for the school when a group of school administrators from the Sun West School Division of Saskatchewan, Canada, stopped by to pick up pointers for a possible Blended program in their school system.

Sun West is a school district covering an area of roughly 400 square miles, making the remote accessibility of blended learning particularly attractive.

In addition, as a district lacking significant financial resources, the visitors also sought cost-efficiency, said Darren Gasper, Sun West superintendent of education.

While their tour of the U.S. included stops at several Chicago Public Schools-affiliated specialized schools as well as a few private schools, the visitors said they were most impressed by the HHS program.

That was in large part due to the strong success of the District’s in-house creation and rollout of the program without significant capital investment.
