Mentor Public Schools’ innovative blended learning program not only garnered it four #BestEdTech awards from the Ohio Educational Technology Conference, but the district also will be taking the lead with a new state education network.
Mentor Schools Superintendent Matt Miller recently accepted the position of chairman of the Ohio Blended Learning Network. The group formed in the fall as part of Gov. John Kasich’s Straight A Fund, which offered a grant program based on the concept of blended learning.
The network will be staffed by Smarter Schools, a nonprofit education consulting organization based in Cincinnati, according to a news release. Technical support is being offered by Education Elements, a California-based education consulting firm that has worked with Mentor and Reynoldsburg City Schools in Ohio.
