The purpose of eAcademy™ is to provide local school districts with the ability to build the capacity to fully integrate online learning into their schools. As we have grown, we have built partnerships that enable us to provide additional resources to our districts.
In 2017, the Westmoreland Intermediate Unit recognized the need to establish partnerships that would help us provide access to additional courses from content providers that have not yet been developed by our eAcademy™ teachers. This resulted in the establishment of eAcademyPLUS™, a facet of eAcademy™ that allows us to offer additional courses to our students by leveraging vendor-created digital courses paired with instruction from local teachers.
All eAcademyPLUS™ teachers have the required skills necessary to review, revise, and teach high-quality, rigorous, and engaging online courses that are aligned to their district’s curriculum.
