Silicon Schools Fund Awards First Grants for Blended Learning Schools

THE BLENDING BEGINS: The Silicon Schools Fund (SSF) announced its inaugural round of grants, worth $1.7 million, to two charter school organizations in the SF Bay Area. (The nonprofit launched last year, aiming to raise $25 million to create 25 blended learning schools in the region.) Summit Public Schools will receive $1.4 million to build two such schools in fall 2013; check out this report from the Dell Foundation last year for how that model works. Alpha Public Schools will spend its $300K to grow one of its existing schools, Alpha: Blanca Alvarado Middle School, which already operates on a blended learning model. More details available in the press release.
