CTO Offers Distant Learning

CTO, like all schools during the pandemic, continues to educate students across the state of Minnesota. We are partnering with schools using “distant learning” to offer critical real-time curriculum on substance use disorder, the opioid epidemic, and novelty drug trends. All of which serves to save lives and provide students with insight that will allow them to make informed decisions about substance use.

To deliver this critical education safely and effectively during these unprecedented times, we’re working with some of our closest partner schools to tweak our program. Our efforts at pioneering a new paradigm look promising!

Student surveys show our program continues to be impactful and effective in a distant learning format. 98% of students believe young adults would benefit from seeing the program. 100% said they will be more informed and more careful when making decisions about taking any prescriptions or substances of any kind.

If you are interested in scheduling a distant learning program with CTO, please contact us.

  1. Hello, my name is Emma Quinn and I’m a reporter with CBS3 in Duluth. I saw the GoFund me page Colleen Ronnei has created to help support Change the Outcome during COVID and bring support to schools virtually.
    I was curious if anyone would have time or be interested in setting up an interview in the next few days/weeks to talk more about the organization and how it’s helped, students?

    Thank you!

    1. Hello Emma. I would be happy to talk with you when you’re thinking of doing a story on this. Change the Outcome has been coordinating with Proctor High School to offer this program as soon as the students/teachers get settled into the new year. I’m going to visit my son in Michigan tomorrow but I’ll be back next week to start filming a secondary piece that teachers can use in a more flexible way as they navigate distant learning. I’ll reach out to you via email so we can exchange contact info. Thanks.
