Edgenuity, a leading provider of online and blended learning solutions, today announced that initial credit and credit recovery students in Community Unit School District 308 (Oswego, IL) have gained significant year-over-year increases in achievement through exposure to a combination of Edgenuity’s online curriculum and traditional hands-on teaching techniques.
“School District 308 has driven great success in a short time by making sure that students are engaged, listened to, and closely monitored so those who do begin to slip can immediately receive additional attention,” said Eric Watt, assistant director of professional development for the district. “Edgenuity’s ongoing support and flexibility of content have been critical to our ability to meet our students’ individual needs.”
In 2016, initial credit students had a success rate (earning C or better) of 92.6 percent, up from 83.2 percent the previous year. In the same year, the success rate for credit recovery students increased 35 percent (from 26.4 to 61.6 percent). In addition, only half as many students needed credit recovery instruction in 2016.
“School District 308 has effectively implemented online learning by fostering a highly personalized learning experience,” said Edgenuity CEO Sari Factor. “The district made engagement from students, parents, and teachers of the utmost importance, and we commend them for taking the proactive steps to improve student outcomes working together with Edgenuity.”
School District 308 implemented the following changes between summer 2015 and summer 2016, which resulted in the improved results.
