Two Alabama districts are choosing Odysseywareto meet new requirements that every district provide virtual courses for high school students by the 2016-2017 school year.

Features include:

“Odysseyware provides flexibility outside the structure of a school master schedule. We can offer classes anytime, even if they do not show up in our master schedule until the next school term. Additionally, Odysseyware’s credit recovery courses allow our students to quickly regain previously lost credits,” said Jeff McClure, Director of Alternative Learning at Pike County Schools. “This level of flexibility allows Pike’s students to either rejoin their graduation cohorts or at the very least accelerate the anticipated graduation date.”

“Here in Henry County we use our Alternative School (Virtual Campus) two ways. In the traditional school for students that are placed for discipline, and the other is our Innovative Pathways to Graduation (IPG) for our at-risk students,” said Chris Padget, Assistant Superintendent at Henry County Alternative School. “Each student has a different path they can follow through Odysseyware. Younger students will work at the Virtual Campus in their least restrictive environment which enables them to focus strictly on the curriculum in Odysseyware.”
