Exact Path Successes During School Closures and Virtual Learning

At Edmentum, we are so proud to be surrounded by a network of educators that are open to sharing their expertise and best practices in response to enormous challenges. This past spring and summer were no exception. As a result, we’ve collected stories of success, transition, and creative ingenuity to keep students learning and achieving academic growth.

  1. Implementations Grow to Support ALL Students During Virtual Learning

“Teachers have a new appreciation for Edmentum and the functions available to them to meet the needs of all students…because we’ve had 12 weeks of COVID-19 outage, and then we also have a regular summer break, we want to make sure that we’re filling in gaps and decreasing that typical summer loss, which has been exacerbated by COVID-19.”

— LaVonne McClain, director of student information and accountability in Halifax County Schools, North Carolina


  1. Instruction Meets Students Where They Are, Addresses Gaps

“I did use Edmentum during remote learning, in part, because it's a platform my students were already familiar with, and it was built-in differentiation. I could be confident that if they weren't following a lesson that I was providing, that at least when they were on Edmentum, they were getting something at their level and continuing that growth that they were making.”

— Rachel Wright, 4th grade teacher at Odyssey Elementary School, Woods Cross, Utah


 3. Use Worksheets Digitally During One-on-One Intervention

  1. Extensive Training Yields Seamless Transitions

“We trained everybody, and we talked about best practices. Best practices in a small group for differentiation; best practices for homework; best practices for in-school, out of school, all different ways—and then we allowed teachers to make value judgments on how and when they use the programs. I think that has yielded a very good response from our staff as we watch through our dashboard.”

— Eric Hibbs, superintendent at Marlboro Township Public Schools in New Jersey

  1. Readymade Just-Right Instruction Supports Parents

“We ask students to log in to Edmentum for 30 minutes every day and to rotate back and forth between reading and math…I think just because the kids are so independent with using the program already, this has been the one really easy piece for parents too. If parents struggle with some of the other applications, the kids can at least do Edmentum because they can do it very easily on their own.”

— Miranda Smith, principal at Ellicott Elementary School in Calhan, Colorado

  1. Virtual Lessons Pair Perfectly with Asynchronous Online Learning

“Teachers will do a lesson [virtually], and then they’ll give the students some work to complete. Exact Path follows up to help support what teachers just presented in class as practice.”

— Myra Bramlett, principal at Geiger Elementary School in Ridgeway, South Carolina
