The Volcano School of Arts &Sciences, a kindergarten to eighth-grade state public charter school, is adding a “blended learning” pilot program next year. The term “blended learning” traditionally entails a mix of face-to-face instruction with online learning. Students enrolled in Volcano’s Kula ‘Amakihi Community-Based Education Program will receive a blend of home-based, experiential and online learning, coupled with weekly face-to-face time with a licensed teacher, school Education Director Kalima Cayir said. Volcano will cap the program at 30 students the first year, in grades one to eight. The school’s also hiring a teacher to oversee the program. Kula ‘Amakihi is open to any student currently enrolled at Volcano or not. But school officials hope it particularly appeals to nearby students who are currently homeschooled.
