A new kind of school set to open in the south suburbs this fall is part of a relatively small movement toward schools that blend online learning with live in-school teachers. The approach offers students personalized web-based curriculum with the teacher support many of them need, the concept’s supporters say. “Learning is really a social experience and we want to take what that online learning opportunity has, but really reinforce it and support it with strong instruction from a classroom teacher,” Greg Gentle, who will be principal of Flex Academy in Richfield this fall, told KSTP.
