Right On Learning also utilizes blended learning with other programs, most notably the partnership with Las Animas school district. This tutoring program creates a hybrid of tutor guided online and in-person learning to alleviate the difficulties of obtaining educational support in more rural areas. Through online assessment tests and teacher recommendations, students are grouped in various skill levels and assigned to a specific tutor. These small groups meet weekly to review in-class work and strengthen concepts that students are currently engaged in in the classroom. Students responded enthusiastically to the entertaining aspects of online learning as well as the personal relate-ability during in-person sessions. Students enrolled in this program improved on average 9 RIT points for seventh graders and 7 RIT points for eighth graders during the twelve weeks of this program in 2016. The district has requested an additional twelve weeks in the coming school year.
