The majority of blended-learning programs resemble one of four models: Rotation, Flex, A La Carte, and Enriched Virtual. Pivot provides both Flex and Enriched Virtual models.
Flex Model — A program in which the online learning is the backbone of student learning, even if it directs students to offline, subject specific educational activities at times. Students’ progress on an individually customized, fluid schedule among learning modalities, and the teacher of record is located at our facility, available for support. The teacher of record or other educators provide face-to-face support on a flexible and adaptive as-needed basis through activities such as small-group instruction, group projects, and some individual assistance as well as online workshops and office hours. The Pivot implementation of a Flex model has substantial face-to-face support from credentialed staff.
Enriched Virtual Model — A whole-school virtual experience in which students are learning remotely using online delivery of content and instruction for most of their classes with little support at a facility. Teachers of record are assigned to the student and also assist students through online workshops and tutorials and weekly or daily check-ins. The teacher assigned to the student engages in significant amounts of communication with the student and the family.
Pivot refers to both models as “blended” learning. While students can work virtually from home, Pivot offers both in-person and virtual classes or workshops where students can get help daily with their online curriculum. Pivot Charter School also frequently offers activities, field trips and special events to build a true school community feeling and to provide students an opportunity to socialize and make connections.
