Fuel Education Honors Seven Programs for Transforming Education for Students

Herndon, Virginia, July 2, 2018 —Education is not one size fits all. Students learn in different ways and have varying needs. That’s why innovative educators across the country are implementing creative programs to better meet those needs. The Fuel Education®Transformation Awards program celebrates schools, districts, or organizations that are successfully transforming the way teachers teach and students learn.

The 2018 Fuel Education (FuelEd®) Transformation Award winners are:

  • Boulder Valley School District (Colo.) – for improving graduation rates and meeting student needs by providing online options for credit recovery and supplemental learning.
  • California STEAM San Bernardino (Calif.) – for supplementing online coursework with innovative projects like virtual makerspaces, STEAM fairs, coding workshops, drone-enabled virtual field trips, and more.
  • Genesis Innovative School (Ala.) – for implementing full-time, statewide virtual school opportunities to provide students with rigorous online courses in a learning model that meets their individual needs.
  • Newman Crows Landing Unified School District (Calif.) – for individualizing instruction using real-time data from an engaging adaptive learning tool to boost elementary classroom performance.
  • Orestimba High School (Calif.) – for creating a new way for students to study and explore their interests via access to online courses at a rural school with a 100 percent graduation rate.
  • Southwest Plains Regional Service Center (Kan.) – for giving dropouts and at-risk students an opportunity to earn a high school diploma and expanding access to online courses to hundreds of students across the state.
  • Watson Institute Social Center for Academic Achievement (Penn.) – for providing a personalized, yet flexible and stable learning experience for students with high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder.

“These transformative programs are the result of strong leadership combined with creativity and resourcefulness,” said Sean P. Ryan, General Manager of Fuel Education. “Our goal at FuelEd is to provide educators committed to transforming their classrooms into modern learning environments with digital curriculum and content that can empower teachers and help them meet the diverse needs of students in a variety of circumstances—both expected and unanticipated.”

Each Transformation Award winner uses FuelEd’s portfolio of online courses and adaptive learning tools to meet the varying needs of their students, which represent different demographic, economic, and geographic backgrounds. The winning programs are inventive in the way they use online learning to overcome challenges, whether it is by providing students with the means to earn a high school diploma after dropping out, filing teacher vacancies, helping students recover credits, differentiating instruction based on real-time progress data, or providing students with access to a wider variety of elective courses.
