  • I was doing some follow-up work yesterday with our first group to go through Blended Learning Live!. They are an alternative high school in their district and looking to make some huge changes. They all could not say enough good things about how BLL set them up to head down the path they're on. They're making some big changes, but are really focused on their student needs and even using pieces of their "Day in the Life" project to help share their vision with students, parents and board members. Your program is helping us make change with the teams we have worked with and we are extremely grateful for that! — Alpena, MI
