Missed Edgenuity Training???

That's OK! Went well today at Akins. GO ELA Eagles! They had 24 attendees!!! Other represented were Vikings and JAGS!

We are providing a Dec. 16 training from 1:30 - 4:30 for the GPA campuses. If you are interested in sending some folks, email me: jennifer.mendez@austinisd.org

We are covering subs. Upcoming dates for training: January 21 and 22, along with dates in February TBA. We are looking for venues and heavy campus interest. I will be reaching out, but heavy consideration for campuses that email/text/contact me first!

What's Edgenuity?

We have a full-blown license for all high schools. There is TSI, ACT, SAT test prep. A ridiculous amount of curriculum aligned with state TEKS is also available. It is a great way to use for redemption, recovery, and small group instruction. Several campuses have great usage. If you have good or bad to say, let me know. We are working closely with the company to ensure campuses have what they need! Complements Delta well.
