Edgenuity, a leading provider of online and blended learning solutions, today announced that its middle school Common Core ELA courses have been adopted by the Oregon Department of Education. Edgenuity was one of only seven publishers adopted at grades 6-8.

Reviewer comments included statements promoting the relevance and alignment of content. One reviewer stated, “[the program] provides thematic connections between fiction and non-fiction over multiple content areas” while another stated, “[the program] consistently provides on-demand writing opportunities throughout the program.”

“Edgenuity’s engaging, research-based curriculum provides an exciting opportunity for middle school students to access comprehensive, standards-based content in an online environment, which is more powerful and versatile than a textbook,” said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “By integrating curriculum and assessment, our platform provides teachers with rich data to closely monitor student progress. Together, they help drive improved student outcomes, preparing students for college and careers.”

Oregon’s rigorous adoption process is designed to ensure that instructional materials reflect the most current information and research and are aligned to academic content standards. In addition to meeting or exceeding the standards of Oregon’s Instructional Materials Evaluation Process, providers must also receive recommendation by the State Board.
