  2. Urban school with 49,000 students • 7 High Schools • 3 Alternative Sites • 11 Middle Schools • 63 Elementary Schools

  3. OPS eLearning Mission Provide students and staff with a comprehensive, integrated set of curriculum tools in the area of Curriculum, Assessment, and Learning Management that will streamline the development, delivery, and dissemination of the OPS K-12 curriculum content and data. • System to supplement and deliver curriculum to students • Curriculum Content and Resource Repository • Professional Development Opportunities

  4. OPS Evolving with “e” Tools Teaching and Learning through the use of a Learning Management System “e” Initiatives Credit Recovery Curriculum Repository Blending “e” tools with Teaching & Learning Elementary 1:1 Distance Education Homebound

  5. Credit Recovery Needsstarted it all…..

  6. Credit Recovery “The Big Picture” 70.50% Graduation Rate (2006/2007) 1,094 Drop Outs (2006/2007) 3,322 (Grades 9-11) Students with 0-1.75 GPA (2006/2007) 18,266 Credits “failed” by High School students in Core subjects required for graduation (2006/2007)

  7. On-Line Credit Recovery OPS started the transition from an on-line “tutorial” system to a customized on-line system in June, 2006. Courses were developed and piloted throughout the 2006/2007 school year. The primary on-line delivery model involves a blended environment—which is a teacher in a lab setting facilitating instruction, with some assignments given “anytime/anywhere”.

  8. Why Customize and Prioritize On-Line Credit Recovery? It provides: an opportunity to align district standards and assessments within the course. an avenue to individualize instruction to meet credit recovery needs. multi-modal learning experiences. activities, assignments, assessments utilizing LMS. simulations and interactivity. opportunities for delivery in a blended environment in a traditional school, or for a variety of alternative delivery options.

  9. Credit Recovery Credit recovery is the opportunity to repeat a course to earn credit required for graduation. In OPS, all courses are aligned with content standards. Credit recovery opportunities are designed for students to demonstrate proficiency in each content standard in the course—mastery of standards is prioritized over ”seat time”.

  10. Credit Recovery Summer School Teachers use Master Course and differentiate for student needs Transition Room Students work during the school day on recovery courses Independent Study - Accelere Teachers use Master Course and differentiate for student needs Adult High School Credit Recovery 1x week classroom experience with 24/7 access to assignments and multimedia lessons

  11. 2009 Summer School Credit Recovery Results 1,885 course enrollments made by 1,049 individual students 60% of the courses students enrolled in were passed 33% of the courses students enrolled in are still “in progress” 5% of the courses students were enrolled in were failed 2% of the courses students were enrolled in were dropped
