Indianapolis, Ind.–June 20, 2007–ANGEL® Learning, recognized innovator of enterprise elearning software and services, today announced that Forsyth County Schools has adopted the ANGEL Learning Management Suite (LMS). A quickly growing school district northeast of Atlanta, Forsyth County Schools licensed a competitive system before switching to ANGEL LMS. The switch to ANGEL brings the district additional online learning management functionality.
"As the first school system in Georgia to make a commitment to a learning management system for all secondary school teachers, we are striving to ensure that for our students the learning never stops," states Steve Mashburn, coordinator of online education, Forsyth County Schools. The school system will make ANGEL available in each of its four high schools in the fall of 2007 and implement the system in its eight middle schools in the winter of 2008.
The district holds a progressive view of the use of technology in education. "Today´s students have never known a world where technology did not exist and their worldview has to be addressed," maintains Bailey Mitchell chief officer of technology and information for Forsyth County Schools. "We strongly believe that new technology demands a new way of looking at education. In Forsyth County, we are not satisfied in using technology to do things better; we strive to use technology to do better things."
"ANGEL Learning shares Forsyth County Schools´ focus on academic excellence and innovation," said Christopher Clapp, president and CEO, ANGEL Learning. "Our emphasis on creating an exceptional educational experience puts the technology in the background. We´re striving to make ANGEL a ?natural´ part of the everyday classroom experience for teachers and students. Forsyth´s approach aligns well with ours, so we are very excited to work with them as their educational technology needs grow and change."
Forsyth County Schools serves more than 28,000 students. By the year 2013, enrollment is projected to exceed 50,000 students. The district is currently home to nine Georgia Schools of Excellence and one National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.
