Building a Sustainable Virtual Learning Program with EdOptions Academy

Building a Sustainable Virtual Learning Program with EdOptions Academy

It’s no secret that the past year has presented some challenges for school districts. While most students will return to school in-person, there are many families that want to continue virtual learning long-term. In our session from ISTE 2021, we explore how schools and districts can partner with Edmentum’s EdOptions Academy, Edmentum’s fully accredited online school for all K-12 students, to offer sustainable in-district virtual learning so students can remain in their home districts.

Through EdOptions Academy, we offer a full spectrum of instructional services. Whether you are using your own teachers or our teachers, we can support you!
