SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As a committed endorsing partner of the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI), e2020, Inc., announces all existing courses have been aligned to the Common Core Standards.  Additionally, new courses developed by the company will utilize Common Core State Standards to create the course matrix, and scope and sequence. To provide schools and districts with a more comprehensive eLearning program model for students, the e2020 Inc., Common Core Standards alignment process is manually configured, resulting in more accurate and granular results.

"Aligning our courses to follow Common Core State Standards allows us to ensure that our content meets the standards required for each grade level," says Michael Humphrey, President of e2020, Inc. "Utilizing a manual alignment process allows us to be extremely rigorous and accurate, ultimately providing students with a superior online learning experience."

Adopting Common Core State Standards can be problematic when states and districts are required to sort through numerous alignment claims based solely on keyword search. By utilizing a manual analysis and comparison method, e2020, Inc., offers a more accurate system for schools and districts, improving outcomes for students. In addition, e2020, Inc., offers custom alignment to district pacing guides to more accurately depict standards and increase alignment efficiency.
