This field report is the third in a series produced by the Center on Innovations in Learning's League of Innovators. The series describes, discusses, and analyzes policies and practices that enable personalization in education. Issues of the series will present either issue briefs or, like this one, field reports on lessons learned by practitioners recounting the successes and obstacles to success encountered in implementing personalized learning. This issue is a field report on the FLIGHT (Facilitating Learning through Integration, Guidance, High expectations, and Technology) Academy in Waukesha, Wisconsin. The FLIGHT Academy is a personalized learning program functioning within a traditional school model. The diversity of students in the program is representative of the school district. The program provides services for students with learning and emotional disabilities, students who are English language learners, and students who are gifted and talented. There is no grade or ability requirement to enroll in FLIGHT; students and their parents only have to fill out an application showing interest. This field report describes the steps that went into the development of the FLIGHT Academy, and the modifications that have been made to the program in response to various challenges that surfaced after the implementation of the program.
