I am often asked this question when I meet with parents and other educators to talk about vibrant learning.
A hybrid school is an institution that offers traditional, on-campus classes as well as online classes for students to select from as part of their studies. For example, students may take an English Language Arts class with an on-campus teacher in the morning and then have a biology class online in the afternoon.
Hybrid schools can vary in the amount of “face-to-face” and online instruction that it offers. The plan for the new high school is developed on the assumption that approximately 50% of the day will include instruction in the classroom. Students will enroll in online classes for the rest of the day.
