This is the second blog in a series where we will be exploring the topic of innovation and its impact on digital curriculum.
When you consider education technology companies that have been around for 20 years, you might be surprised that only a handful still exist today. And many that do exist are not the same companies they were two decades ago. It’s extremely rare to come across an education curriculum company that has successfully sustained its mission, to provide every student—from struggling to advanced—with an opportunity to achieve to his or her potential, for more than two decades.
Throughout our 20-year history, we have partnered with school districts to deliver on the promise of digital curriculum to personalize learning. Apex Learning digital curriculum meets students where they are and propels them to grade-level mastery and beyond. But what truly sets us apart is results.
Our digital curriculum has been proven to help districts increase graduation rates, close achievement gaps, and expand learning opportunities for middle and high school students. We have three third-party research studies demonstrating the efficacy our digital curriculum. Schools across the country get better outcomes when they partner with us: higher graduation rates, lower dropout rates, improved scores on high-stakes exams, and more students ready for the next step. For example: St. Mary’s County Public Schools increased the graduation rate by 11.5 percentage points and Sarasota County Schools cut the dropout rate in half.
What does the future hold?
Throughout the past two decades, we have seen the use of digital curriculum by school districts increase significantly. However, the reality is we are still a long way from realizing the potential for digital curriculum to personalize learning for all students and improve educational outcomes.
While there are many examples of the positive impact of digital learning, there remains a tremendous opportunity to support every teacher and every classroom with personalized learning designed to meet the unique needs of each student.
By continuing to innovate and develop new models to support digital instruction, we have the opportunity to better meet the needs of all students and to increase academic performance across the nation.
