[Customer Spotlight] 5 Outstanding Edmentum Implementations for Blended Learning

Thursday, August 25, 2016 -- Shannon LaBree

We love hearing about all of the great personalized learning programs that educators who use our solutions have developed, and we know that there are many ways to implement Edmentum’s online solutions for assessment, practice, and instruction successfully. Schools and districts across the country have worked hard to discover what’s effective for their students, and we’d like to take the time to share just a few of our favorite success stories. Hopefully, one of their stories can help in your implementation process!

Sheboygan Falls School District

Sheboygan Falls Middle School was placed on Wisconsin’s list of “Title 1 Focus Schools” due to achievement gaps for two subgroups in math. The school needed a solution that would identify those students at risk of not passing their current grade and help them get back to grade level. Initially, Sheboygan Falls School District’s main goals focused on supporting response to intervention (RTI) programs in the middle school with Study Island’s online practice and assessments; however, the district soon started identifying other uses for Edmentum’s Study Island and other solutions, including Edmentum Assessments and Plato Courseware, across other schools in the district.

Abraham Clark High School

Abraham Clark High School in New Jersey was challenged with raising persistently low graduation rates. To address the issue, the high school decided to refresh its credit recovery and career and technical education programs by using Edmentum’s Plato Courseware in a blended learning setting. Through a combination of innovative teaching in the school’s Ram Academic Program (RAP) and online curriculum from Plato Courseware, graduation rates have increased 22% since partnering with Edmentum.

Vincennes Community School Corporation

Vincennes Community School Corporation (VCSC) in Indiana was searching for a comprehensive solution to help address a variety of student needs, including formative assessment, remediation, credit recovery, and accelerated learning. VCSC partnered with Edmentum to implement a suite of online solutions, including Plato Courseware, Study Island, EducationCity, Reading Eggs, Reading Eggspress, and Edmentum Assessments. Now, VCSC educators are equipped with a complete “toolbox of digital resources” to support instructional needs and student achievement from kindergarten through high school.

Woodrow Wilson Elementary

Woodrow Wilson Elementary School in Texas is one of the highest performing Title I schools in its district. When looking for an online solution, the school needed a program aligned to Texas’ state standards for its 3rd through 5th grade students in math, reading, and science. Wilson Elementary was able to successfully implement Edmentum’s Study Island as a supplement to its high-quality instruction in the classroom. The school saw such increases in student achievement that it has since expanded the program’s use and made it available to students at home. Click here for the full story.
