Edgenuity to bring online learning to San Francisco high schools
- The San Francisco Unified School District has chosen online and blended learning provider Edgenuity for the district's high schools.
- The company was put through an RFP and a three-stage review process prior to selection, and its continuously up-to-date content and multi-dimensional instructional design with multiple learning paths ultimately won the district over.
- The platform will be rolled out this month and eventually expanded to provide an alternative blended and online option to students outside of traditional schooling.
This is a big deal for Edgenuity, as the San Francisco Unified School District is the seventh largest in California. Students in its 17 high schools can now take advantage of Edgenuity for credit recovery and supplemental instruction, and a significant amount of its curriculum is approved by the University of California's doorways "a-g" subjects guidelines, which specify requirements for freshmen. With college and career readiness being a major point of focus on both state and federal levels, the Edgenuity deal seems like it should benefit all parties involved.
