In 2009, Lincoln Learning met with Centre Unified School District and discussed options for creating a statewide online school to preserve the district. From these collaborative sessions, the Kansas Online Learning Program (KOLP) was born. Throughout program development, we provided KOLP staff with quality curriculum resources and assistance in recruitment, enrollment, and customer service. Remaining approachable and ever-present allowed us to work continuously with KOLP personnel to ensure the learning program met the district’s specifications. The program’s humble beginnings saw a 21-student enrollment in Year 1; however, each year draws increasing interest, and KOLP currently serves 350 students throughout the state.
“Lincoln Learning was paramount in the creation of KOLP. Working with Lincoln was one of our best decisions in 10 years of a successful virtual program.” - Vickie Jirak, Director
In 2016, Moon Area School District in Allegheny County, PA, incorporated our digital content and assessment library, Helix, into their curriculum. Finding great success with this new tool, the district approached us about developing a solution to provide remediation for students struggling to complete the Keystone Exams, a graduation requirement mandated by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The district shared course sequence documents with our curriculum experts, which enabled our team to create crosswalks that paired our national standards-aligned content to the Pennsylvania standards covered in the Keystone Exams. Using Helix to pull learning objects from 20 Lincoln Empowered courses, our team designed three customized remediation courses with pre- and post-tests that enabled the district to fulfill their instructional needs in English Language Arts 10, Biology, and Algebra I.
“The way Lincoln Learning Solutions has set up its digital library could revolutionize education. What we are ready to embark upon is a really big deal.” - Director of K-12 Curriculum
