Edmentum, provider of online learning solutions, has been recognized by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) as a multidistrict online course provider and program provider in Washington state. Edmentum’s online course offerings, accessible through EdOptions Academy, have been approved for the 2014-15 school year, and the approval will remain valid for the next three years.

Washington public schools must use approved providers or an OSPI-approved program to receive state funding for their online programs. Providers are reviewed by the Digital Learning Department, a division of the OSPI, to ensure accreditation, teacher certification and state standards alignment. EdOptions Academy’s approval encompasses core, elective, foreign language, and advanced courses.

“Our EdOptions Academy online courses provide flexibility and additional learning opportunities to students in Washington, while also aligning to state quality standards,” said Vin Riera, CEO of Edmentum, Inc. “This approval allows us to partner with more schools in Washington to achieve the state’s educational goals.”
