Apex Learning digital curriculum has a significant impact on student achievement, according to recent data released by Dallas Independent School District. The district partnered with Apex Learning to implement rigorous, standards-based online courses in the Reconnection Center Program (Reconnect). End-of-course performance for Reconnect students has improved each year since the initial implementation of Apex Learning digital curriculum, and the percent of seniors graduating on time is higher than prior to using Apex Learning.

“Results from independent research like that conducted by Dallas Independent School District confirm that Apex Learning digital curriculum has a positive impact on student outcomes,” said Cheryl Vedoe, CEO of Apex Learning. “When implementing programs using Apex Learning digital curriculum to provide new learning opportunities for students, educators can have confidence that they are using a curriculum proven to increase student achievement and raise graduation rates.”

The Dallas ISD report examining their Reconnect program showed that a significantly higher percentage of students passed the Assessment of Course Performance (ACP) exams and the graduation rates for seniors were also higher than the graduation rates prior to implementing Apex Learning digital curriculum.
