Edmentum and Carone Learning: Expanding Student Choices for Health and Fitness Education

Wednesday, December 7, 2016 -- Brianna Pyka

Edmentum is excited to announce our brand-new K–12 health and fitness library powered by Carone Learning, the country’s leading provider of online health, physical education (PE), elective, and career courses for elementary, middle, and high school students. Each of these new courses is aligned to meet state-specific standards and provide structured guidance to help students identify their own personal health and fitness plans. Students will receive a personalized experience that focuses on their unique health and fitness needs, goals, and interests and that allows them to identify their own pathway at their own pace.

This new partnership with Carone Learning will add over 65 semesters of health, fitness, and career and technical education curriculum to Edmentum’s library to promote healthy living and expand student options. This expansion is in addition to our existing 105 semesters of CTE and elective courses.

As the leader in K–12 health, fitness, and career education, Carone Learning provides quality solutions and proven outcomes, empowering students to achieve their health, fitness, and career goals. This goal-centric curriculum allows students to focus on their personal objectives and interests as they work at their own flexible pace. The curriculum offered will include courses such as K─12 Health and PE, Anatomy, Physiology, Personal Training, Sports Officiating, and Introduction to Nursing. This curriculum meets the national standards for health and physical education with a focus on health-enhancing levels of activity, learning health and fitness principles, and skill development.

Carone Learning courses will be available starting in February 2017 through Edmentum’s Plato Courseware’s Learning Management System. This partnership and the growth of our elective and career course offerings are a continuation of Edmentum’s commitment to providing learners with diverse choices and opportunities to explore subjects outside of the core curriculum. By offering high-quality, flexible options for online learning, we aim to empower learners with the ability to set and meet their own goals.
