Increasing engagement in your elearning program takes more than an email every now and then.

Guest Column: Changes in store for the eLearning Caf?
News from Tahoe Daily Tribune:

Kudos to former Principal Cooper and her team for scoring the district’s highest increase in graduation rate last year. While many factors go into achieving such a success, one of them was Ms. Cooper’s creative use of the public-private partnership with the eLearning Caf?.

Thirty-two percent of the graduating class — 21 out of 65 seniors — took one or more challenging, accredited courses with us, from credit recovery to Advanced Placement.

Six of these students could not have graduated on time (or perhaps at all) without the option to meet graduation requirements through eLearning Caf? offerings. And that’s just Incline High.

Our students now range across 14 time zones, from New York to Japan, where our instructors videoconference with students at least weekly.

With this profound academic success comes a change in our focus from community learning center to “school of the future,” dedicated to working intensively with part-time and full-time students, grades 6-12.

Beginning this week, you will see eLearning Caf? signs replaced with “I•School,” acknowledging our focus on individualized education. We have also opened a second, larger location in Reno, in a historic home…………… continues on Tahoe Daily Tribune
