Georgia , Utah Approve Online Course Provider

Edgenuity, provider of online and blended learning solutions has recently received approval to provide instructional material in districts across Georgia and Utah. Edgenuity is also approved as an instructional materials provider for mathematics in New Mexico, and is currently undergoing the approval processes to provide instructional materials to numerous states and districts across the country.

Henry County, Georgia, adopted Edgenuity as its mathematics content provider last year, and the district is planning to roll out Edgenuity’s platform to over 26,000 middle and high school students this coming fall.

“As wireless access and mobile devices become ubiquitous, digital materials let us give students access to engaging, high-quality resources, and allows teachers to truly personalize the learning experience,” said Aaryn Schmuhl, assistant superintendent for learning and leadership at Henry County Schools. “Students can move ahead at their own pace and teachers are able to tailor lessons to the needs of each child.”

Edgenuity has also been adopted as a mathematics content provider in Jasper County, Georgia. Mike Newton, Superintendent of Jasper County Schools, said, “We have been extremely satisfied with the experience our middle and high school students have had using the Edgenuity platform to date.”

Increasingly, states across the country are adopting online instructional materials as part of their curriculum. Currently, 22 states including Texas, Florida, California and Virginia have endorsed the use of digital materials. Technology based instruction can reduce the time students take to reach a learning objective by 30 to 80 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Education and studies by the National Training and Simulation Association.
