Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) June 29, 2016
Edgenuity, a leading provider of online and blended learning solutions, announced today that it has become the newest online educational technology provider to have achieved Digital Learning Accreditation from AdvancED. AdvancED is the world’s largest international community of education professionals consisting of over 34,000 schools and school systems across 72 countries.
“Edgenuity is constantly evolving its curriculum, instruction and technology to meet the changing needs of students and educators,” said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “We’re focused on continuing to improve student outcomes and are proud to be recognized for providing an empowering educational experience to help teachers and students achieve excellence.”
“Standards serve not only as a measurement for quality, but as a foundation for planning and implementing improvement strategies,” said Dr. Darrell Barringer, Director at AdvancED. “They provide a common language through which the education community can engage in conversations about educational advancement and continuous improvement. We applaud Edgenuity for earning AdvancED Digital Learning accreditation and its commitment to continuous improvement.”
Edgenuity was evaluated and approved for effectiveness across the following categories:
- Teaching and Learning Impact: Student performance results, instructional quality, learner and family engagement, support services for student learning, curriculum quality and efficacy, and college and career readiness data.
- Leadership Capacity: Institutional purpose and direction, governance and leadership effectiveness, stakeholder engagement, improvement capacity, and results.
- Resource Utilization: Allocation and use of resources, equity of resource distribution to need, level and sustainability of resources, long range capital, and resource planning effectiveness.
AdvancED’s External Review Process involves a rigorous, innovative and state-of-the-art framework, called The Index of Education Quality™ (IEQ™). It provides a holistic measure of an institution’s overall performance based on a comprehensive set of indicators and evaluative criteria. As a formative tool for improvement, it pinpoints areas of strength as well as those in need of support or focus.
With the addition of AdvancED, Edgenuity is accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), and the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC). Together these groups cover nearly 75 percent of the United States.
Institutions seeking to gain or retain accreditation must meet AdvancED Standards specific to their institution type, demonstrate acceptable levels of student performance and the continuous improvement of student performance, and provide evidence of stakeholder engagement and satisfaction.
