How Personalized Learning Models Can Meet the Needs of Students with Disabilities: Thrive Public Schools Case Study

CRPE contracted with the National Center for Special Education in Charter Schools (NCSECS) to conduct case studies on school models and practices that effectively serve students with special needs. This brief highlights how San Diego charter school network Thrive Public Schools is using personalized learning to meet the needs of its students with disabilities.

NCSECS researchers conducted document reviews of both publicly available and privately shared resources; interviewed school administrators, teachers and staff, students, and families; and observed educators and students in action. The case study reflects school visits and data from Thrive’s three campuses in the fall of 2017.
