Upon log in, students will see a streamlined LMS that is easier to navigate with better content and resources. (The actual classes will not be affected.) Improvements include:

  • New coach directory with one-click contact options
  • Pacing and date info to help students stay on track
  • Newly designed look and feel
  • Better navigation
  • Updated resources to help learners be successful
  • “Career & College Corner” to help with planning next steps
  • Student Lounge to enhance the feeling of community
  • Clear info on transcripts, transfer credit, and graduation

In our ongoing commitment to continuous improvement, the SHCOE team collected feedback from stakeholders including students, coaches, staff, and partners to identity areas of priority. This initiative also supports our 2020 Vision and Strategic Goals:


  • Enhance our offerings to meet the evolving demands of 21st-century students.
  • Collaborate with stakeholders to generate new ideas—and to keep their ability to meet their constituents’ needs on the cutting edge.


  • Enhance the student experience through constant innovation and initiatives.
  • Increase stakeholder satisfaction through new outreach initiatives.

We look forward to a seamless launch and are here to offer support as needed:
