ROYERSFORD PARENT PRESENTATION


SPRING CITY YEARLY PROGRAM REVIEW
To ensure the fidelity of the hybrid learning program, Pennsylvania Hybrid Learning Institute (PA HLI) tracks performance and outcomes for each school utilizing the hybrid learning model. Performance and outcomes were based on 25 distinct operational tasks. At the conclusion of the school year, each pilot implementation was categorized as one of the following:
  • Hybrid
  • Approaching Hybrid
  • Not Hybrid

Information is compiled to produce the Program Review – Hybrid Learning Final Program Review by utilizing Performance Reports and the supporting data collected to form those monthly reports. The written documentation is presented during a Program Review meeting where the report contents are considered and future planning is discussed.

THE HISTORY OF HYBRID LEARNING IN SFASD
On June 18, 2012, the Spring-Ford Area School District Board of School Directors reviewed information regarding the implementation plan for the Spring City Elementary Hybrid Learning School. Once approved, Spring City Elementary Hybrid Learning School was one of the first elementary hybrid learning environments in the country, and the first of its kind in the eastern part of the country.

The vision of the hybrid learning in Spring-Ford is as follows:
  • To explore an educational structure (specific to elementary level) that moves beyond the four walls of the current elementary classroom to that of a truly global 21st century learning environment
  • To allow teachers and students to explore new methods of instructional pedagogy and learning while simultaneously building a foundation that leads directly to college and career readiness in the 21st century
  • To provide high quality professional development for not only the staff, but for the students as well
  • To incorporate ongoing assessments of progress to ensure that students are progressing at an appropriate level
  • To reshape the way that we view pedagogy and education (as a whole) at the elementary level, for tomorrow and beyond

Key features of a Hybrid Learning Environment are as follows:
  • Technology enables customized learning
  • Assessments occur daily with regular reports. Data informs the instruction
  • Students receive the same material different ways to accommodate distinct learning styles
  • Teachers instruct in small groups
  • Education occurs primarily at-school
  • May be applied to entire schools or subsets (e.g. classes, grades, sections)

With the key benefits of a more personalized learning environment being:
  • Increased student performance
  • Better academic choices
  • Self-paced learning
  • 21st century skills development
  • More learning engagement

WELCOME TO SPRING CITY ELEMENTARY HYBRID LEARNING SCHOOL
Tuesday, September 18, 2012 was a very special day for the students and staff of the Spring City Elementary School of the Spring-Ford Area School District. The students and staff of Spring City Elementary, along with members of the Spring-Ford Area School District administration, school board, and honored guests gathered for a “Kick-off” assembly to officially launch the Spring City Elementary Hybrid Learning School.

The Spring City Elementary Hybrid Learning School was only the fifth public elementary hybrid learning school in the country, and the first of its kind in the eastern United States. Additionally, Spring City Elementary was the first public elementary school (grades K-4) to transition fully from a traditional instructional model to that of a hybrid learning model. The hybrid learning model being utilized at Spring City Elementary is that of a “Rotate-in-Classroom” structure. What that means is that the students are provided with face-to-face and online learning opportunities in an integrated fashion, while being proved with the standards based lessons in multiple ways, all-the-while being delivered in a small group (personalized) learning environment.

The Spring-Ford Area School District welcomes you to tour the Spring City Elementary Hybrid Learning School. This informative nine-minute video will provide you with an overview of our innovative hybrid learning environment.
