Ott's Outlook

December 2018

It is hard to believe that December is upon us. Our staff and students have worked incredibly hard this semester and I am proud of all that they have accomplished!


We launched our Blended Learning initiative on a district-scale this fall. Below is an article that I was asked to write by one of our partners in the Blended Learning journey. It represents the behind-the-scenes process that our staff at all levels have been involved with in preparation of an initiative of this size and scale.


Lastly, I would like to wish you and your family the very best this holiday season!
