A message from Director of Lower School Erin Nemetz:
Thank you for your partnership as we navigate Distance Learning together. We are working diligently to make Distance Learning successful for you and your student(s). Per your feedback on our recent Distance Learning parent survey, two areas of need emerged from the data. Parents would like to receive help and support through:
- A reduced daily workload
- Increased direct instruction and learning that allows students to work independently without direct parent support
Launching Edmentum Exact Path - Online Learning
To address the needs listed above and to provide the highest quality Distance Learning program, our Lower School kindergarten-5th grade is launching an online learning program called Edmentum Exact Path, beginning Tuesday, April 14.
Edmentum Exact Path supports our school mission to:
- Provide academic excellence and rigorous curriculum
- Support individualized and differentiated learning
What is the Edmentum Exact Path? Why are we using it?
During the Distance Learning period, we are using an online learning program from Edmentum called Exact Path. This exciting digital tool offers personalized learning across grades K–5 in reading, language arts and math. It starts by targeting each student's academic strengths and weaknesses with a computer-adaptive assessment, after which it prescribes a tailored playlist of lessons, practices and short quizzes for each student's learning level. Teachers can view the individual daily progress of each student and add lessons and individual and small group instruction, as needed. Students can earn rewards and monitor their own progress each step of the way.
What is the Edmentum Exact Path? How do I get started? (We highly recommend you view these videos)
During the Tuesday, April 14, Google Meet, your classroom teacher and our tech team will walk your student through steps to access Edmentum ExactPath. There is no need to log in until Tuesday during the classroom Google Meet.
What subjects will be explored using Edmentum Exact Path?
Kindergarten-5th grade students will use Exact Path for math instruction. This will replace our current Everyday Math Series math journals and homelinks. This will be the exclusive curriculum we will use for math during Distance Learning and students will use Exact Path to view instructional videos, complete assignments and take assessments that are monitored by their teachers. Teachers will provide additional resources, support and instruction, as needed, as students progress through their individual learning path via Exact Path.
Reading and Language Art Instruction
Currently we are focused on launching math on Edmentum Exact Path. Your student will be able to access the reading and language arts portions of Exact Path and teachers may use portions of this as supplemental material later in the school year.
How often will my student use Edmentum Exact Path?
Every Monday-Thursday your student will log in to Edmentum Exact Path for 20-30 minutes each day to complete their math instruction.
Teachers will note on their daily lesson plans when Exact Path will be used.
How do I log my child on to Edmentum Exact Path?
- Your student will log in to Edmentum/Exact Path through Clever.
- K-2nd grade students: to ensure privacy, your student's Clever badge will be directly emailed to you by Tuesday, April 14.
- 3rd-5th grade students: Clever badges were sent home with iPads and you will use the Clever app on your iPad.
