Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools to implement Edgenuity’s blended learning, instructional services, initial credit and credit recovery

cms-blendedEdgenuity, a provider of online and blended learning solutions, announced that Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS), North Carolina’s second-largest school district, has selected Edgenuity as the district’s primary online and blended learning solution.

Edgenuity will provide access to its full curriculum and offer Blended Learning, Instructional Services, initial credit and credit recovery to the district’s 78 secondary schools.

“CMS has always been a leader in online learning and we believe that all students should have access to the best education available anywhere,” said Hope Kohl, Director of Virtual Learning and Media Services at CMS. “Working with Edgenuity, we know that we will be maximizing the impact of our online and blended learning program and we look forward to seeing significant improvement in student performance this year.”

CMS’s review process was extensive and the district selected Edgenuity in part because of its rigorous content, real-time analytics, flexibility, scalability and its potential to grow with the changing needs of the district. Edgenuity is currently being used in the district for summer school and will be fully implemented for the 2015-2016 school year.

“Edgenuity has seen tremendous growth this year and is currently being used to power online and blended learning for more than 1 million students annually,” said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “We are pleased that Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is the latest district to embrace Edgenuity’s engaging and personalized learning experience to help drive better academic outcomes.”
