    LISD provides blendED learning opportunities fo high school students across the district. A blendED course is ideal for high school students who
    • want a flexible learning environment
    • want to work and go to school
    • want more time in the school day to practice for an activity or sport
    • want to develop future ready skills:  collaboration, communication, time-managent, and organization
    • want more opportunities for self-directed learning

    LISD blendED classes offer the best of both worlds: online and face-to-face instruction. Students do not have to be physically present on campus on an online day. They have Flexible Mobility and may meet with their teacher for one-on-one or small group instruction, collaborate with their peers in a flexible leraning space on campus, or work from home or other off-campus location. On class days, students engage in class discussion, collaboration, project work, practice, and labs.

    BlendED courses are currently offered at the following high schools: The Colony High School, Lewisville High School, Flower Mound High School, Marcus 9th Grade Center, and Marcus High School.

    Students are not alone in their online courses! There is extensive interaction between students and the online teacher and students and their classmates. These frequent, ongoing interactions occur within the course and in real time through a variety of tools: phone, Twitter, course messaging, district email, Zoom, Google Docs, and other Web tools.
