Edgenuity (formerly E2020, Inc.), one of the leading providers of online and blended learning solutions, today announced the availability of expanded and highly flexible summer school options to help resource-constrained schools support the increasingly diverse academic needs and goals of their student bodies. Edgenuity’s summer school program includes 185 courses in core curriculum, credit recovery and electives, as well as state-certified online teaching services, all available with flexible and attractive pricing.

Sari Factor, Edgenuity CEO, said, “Districts and schools are particularly challenged to offer engaging, efficient, and effective programs in the summer months when a wide variety of subjects must be supported with a smaller teaching staff.  Schools can easily customize our offering to make the most of their resources and ensure that summer school students can reach their academic goals.” 

Factor continued, “Notably, more schools are also showing interest in acceleration and enrichment in addition to credit recovery, and parents are willing to pay for their kids to take courses that will increase high school and college readiness.  School leaders are increasingly exploring the full range of opportunities being opened up by including online curriculum in their summer options.”

The Edgenuity Summer School offering centers on:

Student engagement

Online and blended online learning solutions allow students to work at their own pace across a wide variety of subject matter, from home or at school.  Program options include online instruction by certified teachers delivered in media rich formats that appeal to today’s digital natives.  Edgenuity solutions allow students to monitor their progress, encouraging them to be accountable for their learning and success.

Teaching efficiencies

Teachers gain visibility into data that measures student engagement, progress and achievement in real time.  This opens up new opportunities for teachers to coach, course correct and adapt instruction at the individual or group level.  Because the Edgenuity curriculum can be customized, it can also be used by teachers in the way that they feel is most complementary to their instruction.

Empowered administration

Edgenuity courses are Common Core and state standards-aligned, and flexible to respond to changing staff and student variables. Whether using Edgenuity teachers or their own, administrators can develop and sustain innovative summer school programs that are cost effective and meet the diverse needs of students.

Demonstrated effectiveness

Edgenuity’s programs are measurable and make the most of a school’s resources to ensure a high quality summer education experience that expands learning options and opportunities for all types of students.  Edgenuity’s effective solutions are also helping students achieve academically.  Research shows that students enrolled in Edgenuity’s courses are outperforming their peers and demonstrating content-area knowledge on state tests.
