As you recall, last year we purchased the APEX Web-based Learning Program. We have been implementing it in a number of sites in our district that include grades 7-12 general education math classes, LAP Math Academy grades 7/8, TEAM, Special Ed. and ELL. The feedback from staff and students has shown this to be a much more engaging, rigorous and effective learning program that addresses remediation, intervention, credit recovery, and alternative school programs. Its key features include:
We are VERY excited about continuing to have such a versatile program that can be used by many different departments in the district. There has been an increase of approximately $5,000 over last year. The cost is split between TEAM high school, LAP, and Sp Ed. The LAP program will incur the cost increase with some additional funding that will be available this next school year.
