G-J public-information manager Michael Straughter said the district would share its digital blended-learning efforts, a nontraditional approach to learning that includes technology and other components.

"It lets students have more control of their learning and blends different elements," he said. "It's an approach. There's no real model to show what it looks like. A key component that makes this different is that the student gets more control of learning and dictates that pace. It's not just technology, but the student is responsible for his own learning, and the teacher is now a facilitator."

G-J Superintendent Mark White, Lincoln High School principal Dwight Carter and other school officials will be on hand for the visit that's scheduled to last about 90 minutes.
