Case Studies

Updated content standards for health education took effect in California in 2016, requiring all districts to provide a health course at least once in middle school and once in high school. Schools are now faced with the challenge of fitting an extra course into students’ already packed schedules and ensuring that their health courses are properly aligned to standards.

The unique student population at Camp Afflerbaugh-Paige, a juvenile probation camp, required an intense credit recovery program that enabled educators to meet each student’s needs.

City School District of Albany was seeking to expand implementation of Apex Learning Comprehensive Courses from a successful credit recovery program to a complete online solution enabling all students to stay on track to graduate in four years.

Troy City School District’s Alternative Learning Program (ALP) serves students in Grades 8 – 12 who have not had success in a traditional classroom environment.
