Seven Schools Join Blended Learning Program

In an effort to meet the growing need for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) skilled graduates in West Virginia, The Education Alliance is pleased to announce $1 million dollars in grant funding for the Blended Learning initiative.   The Blended Learning program will help teachers in seven rural West Virginia schools “blend” face-to-face instruction with online resources to provide engaging, technology-rich learning opportunities for students. 

The Blended Learning Schools program, sponsored by The Education Alliance, provides resources including a $15,000 Makerspace grant, funding for teacher professional development, and a Volunteer in Service to America (VISTA) position.  Face-to-face instruction will be enhanced through Makerspaces in each school that enable hands-on, project-based learning. Participating teachers will also blend digital instruction using a Learning Management System platform to organize and create content that enhances STEM learning. Participating Blended Learning schools include:

  • Doddridge County High School, Doddridge County
  • Ravenswood High School, Jackson County
  • Lincoln County High School, Lincoln County
  • Logan County High School, Logan County
  • Mann High School, Logan County
  • Ritchie County High School, Ritchie County
  • Tug Valley High School, Mingo County
