COLUMBUS (Dec. 7, 2015) — Residents of Franklin County, Ohio, who are 22 and older and who did not finish high school now can earn a diploma from the school district in which they reside, thanks to a new 22+ Adult High School Diploma Program from Columbus State Community College.

Available at no cost to enrollees, the 22+ Program is a credit-based diploma program, meaning enrollees can finish the credits they missed when they left high school. Participants will have 24/7 access to online courses and can complete their education remotely at their own pace, earning a fully accredited high school diploma rather than a GED. Columbus State has chosen Graduation Alliance to deliver the online instruction because of its proven track record of working with at-risk individuals and re-engaging them in their education.

“Earning a high school diploma is a catalyst for greater success in life, giving adults a better shot at finding higher-paying jobs,” said Stephen Dackin, superintendent of school and community partnerships for Columbus State Community College. “We’re excited to offer an innovative solution that will transform the lives of so many adults by giving them a flexible way to resume their education.”

The 22+ Program includes access to online credit recovery courses, as well as round-the-clock support from highly qualified teachers, tutors, and personal academic coaches. In addition, participants will have an opportunity to extend their education into career credentialing through Columbus State’s FastPath program. FastPath helps Columbus residents gain certifications and industry employment in the supply chain development, childcare, and construction fields.

“Columbus State is proud to provide adults without a high school diploma a chance at a fresh start with our 22+ Program,” said Dr. David Harrison, president of the college. “This program is just one more way we serve the community as a one-stop shop for adults seeking to continue their education, whether it be for a high school diploma, career training, industry certification, or an associate degree.”

To learn more about Columbus State Community College’s 22+ Program or to enroll, call (614) 678-7759.

LocknCharge Now Responsible for Charging, Storing and Deploying Over One Million Devices

MADISON, Wis. (August, 23, 2016) - As educators aim to increase the use of devices in the classroom this upcoming school year, LocknCharge, provider of solutions that increase accessibility and usability of technology, celebrates a milestone of storing, charging and deploying over one million devices. Through their variety of basket-based mobile deployment carts, LocknCharge has helped enable 1:1 learning while saving teachers an average of an hour a week in school districts such as the Coachella Valley Unified School District (CVUSD). When CVUSD, a district with 19,500 students in 22 schools that cover an area in Thermal, Ca. as large as Rhode Island, realized that only 16 percent of their students that went on to college graduated, they looked for ways to change their culture in order to better prepare their students for the 21st century. Though CVUSD is one of the poorest school districts in the country, superintendent Dr. Darryl Adams set out to become the first school district to provide all P-12 students and teachers with Apple iPads. The district realized that they also needed a solution to manage over 20,000 devices. With the help of LocknCharge’s EVO 40 cart, CVUSD has accomplished the goals of its 1:1 program with the seamless introduction of the tablets into every classroom.
