K12 Inc. (NYSE: LRN), the nation’s leading provider of proprietary curricula and online education programs for students in pre-kindergarten through high school, today announced that its online curriculum, Aventa Learning® by K12®, which is widely used by school districts for blended learning programs, was named a “Readers’ Choice Top 100 Product for 2013” by District Administration magazine.
The winners, selected by District Administration’s editors from a record 1,800-plus nominations, were products that received the highest number of nominations and best descriptions from K12 leaders. The Readers’ Choice Top 100 has been announced online and in the December issue of District Administration.
In recognizing the most innovative products, the annual District Administration Readers’ Choice Top 100 Products award informs superintendents and other senior school district leaders about products their colleagues around the country are using to help their districts excel.
“The fact that we had a record number of readers participating in this recognition program is a testament to the interest that K12 leaders have in products for improving educational outcomes and operational efficiencies,” says JD Solomon, District Administration’s editorial director. “All of the honorees in our Top 100 program should be very proud of their achievement.”
“We are honored that school leaders and educators recognize the power of the Aventa curriculum, which is used today by districts across the country in a variety of blended learning models to help expand their catalogs or offer specialty courses that may have low enrollment or are hard to staff,” said Gregg Levin, senior vice president of K12’s institutional business, which serves schools and districts. “We believe that by providing a highly effective curriculum on a platform that is open and easy-to-use for administration and personalization, educators are empowered to provide targeted educational experiences that improve student outcomes.”
The flexible Aventa curriculum features more than 170 self-paced courses for middle and high school students across three academic levels, including AP® and world language courses, and more than 40 high school electives. The curriculum features a rich multimedia format with interactive elements to keep students engaged and motivated to learn. Aventa is delivered through PEAK12, an open, online learning management platform that enables districts to manage and personalize all of their online programs in one place.
