Edgenuity has been selected by the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) to serve as the district’s online learning provider for grades 9-12. Edgenuity’s curriculum and instructional model can now be used for credit recovery and supplemental instruction across all of SFUSD’s 17 high schools. SFUSD is the seventh largest district in California and serves over 55,000 students each year.

“Today’s students are truly digital natives, having grown up with technology in every part of their lives, so we are thrilled to partner with Edgenuity to provide San Francisco students with an online learning platform that is familiar, rigorous and engaging,” said Bill Sanderson, Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction for SFUSD. “Working with Edgenuity, we look forward to maximizing the impact and effectiveness of online learning to help at-risk students and increase overall student achievement and graduation rates.”

SFUSD’s approval process included an RFP and a three-stage process of review. Edgenuity was approved because it offers an instructional design with multi-dimensional pedagogy and multiple learning paths, adequate methods to assess student learning, and content that is continuouly refreshed. Another determining factor was Edgenuity’s UC doorways approved a-g course offerings.

Edgenuity is being rolled out in the district this month, with plans to expand the program to provide additional blended and virtual learning options for students as an alternative to the traditional school setting. Through Edgenuity, the district is offering one of the first online, a-g approved wet lab Chemistry classes in the state of California.
