We have created the following resources that can be exported as a PDF and provided to parents or students when the student begins working in their Edgenuity course. These resources include instructions on using the Parent Portal, a student user guide, as well as tips for troubleshooting access at home.
Edgenuity provides an exciting and engaging educational environment that is designed to capture attention and draw students into the interactive world of online and blended learning.
Edgenuity has provided courses for students since 1998, and through our experience with teachers, students, and parents, we built an engaging and effective curriculum that connects science, math, language arts, social studies, and elective courses to your student’s everyday world.
Using a combination of animations, simulations, video-led direct instruction, relevant web sites, and a myriad of activities that support the lesson’s topic, students have a wealth of information at their fingertips that can be reviewed as many times as necessary to achieve mastery. Edgenuity strongly believes that each student is unique and acquires information in his or her own way. As a result of that belief, our courses are designed to provide students with activities that support the ways they learn best: seeing, hearing, and touching the course materials.
To ensure your student’s experience with Edgenuity is successful, we wanted to introduce ourselves and provide information that will enable you to partner with us in this goal. We are thrilled to have you and your student join the Edgenuity family. Good luck, and have a terrific year!
