Largest Online Learning Consortium in PA to Use StrongMind for Digital Curriculum
- By Kristal Kuykendall
The largest K–12 online learning consortium in Pennsylvania, the Capital Area Online Learning Association, has selected StrongMind to provide standards-aligned digital curriculum for the 10,000-plus students enrolled with CAOLA, StrongMind said in a news release.
Students enrolled with CAOLA have greater flexibility in their coursework, class load, and schedule, and can attend classes solely online or in-person at a local school; students attending school through CAOLA are considered “enrolled” in their local school district and may participate in sports and other school-sponsored extracurricular activities, according to the association’s website.
StrongMind will now provide digital curriculum for CAOLA students, including STEM-focused courses and options for high-schoolers to earn tech-industry certifications before graduation, StrongMind said. Its courses are Digital Promise-certified, and the StrongMind platform includes full reporting that tracks student progress, with data-insights dashboards customized for each stakeholder group: administrators, teachers, parents, and students, the company said.
CAOLA-participating schools offering StrongMind courses will have the option to use their own teachers, Strongmind teachers, or a combination, according to the news release.
