Raising Blended Learners is a statewide initiative to seed and scale personalized learning across Texas in an effort to improve student achievement across diverse demographics, particularly among schools and districts with persistent achievement gaps.

  • Early challenges highlighted the importance of providing teachers and students with tools and year-round support that can help them successfully adapt to the new models.
  • At the end of the year, all surveyed teachers said they would not go back to traditional instruction, reporting that blended learning helped them better engage with their students and meet their needs.
