May 30, 2012, 09:00 ET from E2020 Inc.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- E2020 Inc., one of the fastest growing providers of online learning solutions, today announced the launch of its latest program offering, Virtual School Services. This cost-effective service provides districts and schools with the ability to create their own virtual learning programs and the flexibility to choose the level of service they need to extend their existing capabilities.

"Schools are budget challenged, and our Virtual School Services help administrators do more with fewer resources. By partnering with us, schools can reduce the cost of delivering instruction while keeping students on a path to academic achievement in their home district," said Sari Factor, CEO of e2020. "The flexibility inherent in the offering means schools can easily implement online learning models for a wide variety of programs, from offering electives or Advanced Placement courses, which are often unsupportable because they serve smaller student populations, or for meeting the needs of homebound students."

As a leading provider of online curriculum, e2020 offers district partners an array of advantages:

  • A broad catalog of rigorous standards-aligned courses, including core, career electives, world languages, Advanced Placement, and test preparation content
  • Student access to content-area expert coaches and teachers through a unique student-centered learning model
  • Technology-enabled tools such as live chat, an interactive white board, and webinars for collaboration and communication
  • A fully accredited program with certified teachers to support existing district staff

"Our goal is to complement the strengths of our partner districts," said Factor. "Partners can scale the level of services to provide anything from a Physics tutor who is available after school hours, to a certified Mandarin teacher, to complete program management."
