Edmentum’s High School Offerings Expanded to Include Accredited Career Training Courses for At-Risk Students
Last week, Edmentum announced the official launch of EdOptions Career Academy, in partnership with Smart Horizons Career Online Education. The program was announced at Edmentum’s Annual Sales and Service Conference, held in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“We are excited to bring this high school diploma and career pathway program to K–12 school districts throughout the country, in an effort to improve graduation rates for districts and educational/job outcomes for students at risk of not graduating through traditional paths,” said Dr. Howard Liebman, Superintendent of the Smart Horizons Career Online Education accredited online school district.
Shown below, Dr. Liebman also served as one of the event’s keynote speaker, discussing “Educational Trauma & Best Practices to Help Re-Engage Students Back into the Educational System.”
EdOptions Career Academy will prepare high school students at risk of dropping out with vocational skills and entry-level training in a trade. The partnership brings together SHCOE’s experience in re-engaging at-risk students into the education process with Edmentum’s extensive expertise delivering educational products and services to school districts and students.
