Ohio Online Learning Program Adopts New Virtual Curricula

The Ohio Online Learning Program is teaming up with a private partner to deliver its primary source of digital curriculum. The program, provided by the Educational Service Center of Cuyahoga County, supplies virtual learning options to school districts throughout the state.

The program selected Apex Learning to provide materials and virtual education options to more than 5,000 students in grades 7-12 this school year in every school district in Ohio. The available courses include those required for graduation, credit recovery, advanced placement and electives such as career and technical education and foreign languages.

"Our first priority is to provide districts with the flexible options and cost savings that they do not currently have access to in implementing virtual learning tools," said Jennifer Dodd, director of operations and development for the Educational Service Center of Cuyahoga County.

Cheryl Vedoe, Apex Learning CEO, said, "Districts across the state can have confidence that students using Apex Learning courses with our online teachers will experience the highest quality of instruction."
