Summary of Academics

The learning platform for all CCS and CHS blended and online classrooms is Edgenuity. This platform offers students a choice and voice in their academic courses. For credit recovery, Edgenuity offers classes with a pretest that gives students credit for what they know. Then, the remaining lessons provide students with instructional content that also is correlated with real world examples. Edgenuity is not easy, but it can meet students where they are at and build on their skills. For the students in the blended classroom, that learning is guided and supplemented by their course teachers. Edgenuity also gives students suggested due dates, progress reports, immediate feedback, and control over their time. Parents also have access to Edgenuity Parent Vue that allows parents to see grades, time spent on task and progress.
