Raising Blended Learners is a Texas-based statewide demonstration initiative showcasing strategies for using blended learning to improve student achievement across diverse student demographics and geographic regions.

Launched in Texas in 2015, Raising Blended Learners has now impacted more than 35,000 students.

Raising Blended Learners (RBL) is a statewide demonstration initiative showcasing strategies for using blended learning to improve student achievement across diverse student demographics and geographic regions, particularly among schools and districts with persistent achievement gaps.

CA Group is partnered with Raise Your Hand Texas on the RBL initiative and leads the design and strategic implementation support components of the program.  

One of the most unique aspects of RBL is the sheer scale of the initiative.

In the first fund, RBL directly impacted more than 600 teachers across 50 schools — directly impacting more than 35,000 students. In addition to scale, analyses of Raising Blended Learners impact have shown significant improvement across nearly all schools and districts and in both academic and non-academic areas. 

  • In the 2017–2018 school year, 98% of all RBL schools met state academic standards. 98% 98%
  • 76% of RBL teachers report that they enjoy their jobs more since incorporating personalized blended learning into their classrooms. 76% 76%
  • 79% of school and district leaders enjoy their work more since implementing personalized blended learning in their schools or districts. 79% 79%

In 2019, Raise Your Hand Texas Foundation and CA Group will begin supporting another cohort of districts as they pilot, scale, and sustain blended learning across the state of Texas.
