Blended Learning Sending Site Options for GenNET Districts

A sending site district is able to include up to ten (10) students in its ITV classroom and send to up to three (3) additional sites with 6-8 students at each site. Sending sites provide textbooks and materials for students at receiving sites just like they would for students in a traditional classroom.

This blended learning option is a win-win for local districts sending courses. Tuition is charged for the daily live interaction with teachers based on rates set since the beginning of the GenNET ITV Program. The fee structure and "what's included" are:

  • $450 per student from the receiving sites, per semester.
  • $475 for students at receiving sites outside of GenNET.
  • No tuition charge for students at sending sites.
  • Technical and instructional support provided by the Genesee ISD.
  • Courier service available at beginning, middle and end of school year
  • All HS sites include upgraded FAX/SCAN/PRINT equipment for ITV instructors, and students to use each day during class.

All students are enrolled in a learning management system (LMS). Having this to accompany each course allows students to stay on track, even when away from the classroom.

For more information about becoming a sending site, contact Technology and Media Services at the Genesee ISD at 591-4436, or email mjenning@geneseeisd.org
