Nationally trusted, EdOptions Academy provides extensive and effective virtual programs which are paired with state-certified online teachers, allowing schools and districts to expand and extend their program offerings. 

ISTE reviewers make their determination for the Readiness Seal of Alignment based on the following standards and indicators for students:

  • Research and Information Fluency
  • Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making
  • Digital Citizenship

“With the integration of podcasts, articles, and online resources, EdOptions Academy unit and lessons activities have been awarded for their creativity and innovation,” said Edmentum State & Federal Programs Manager Shane Dennison. “We’re proud to continue our certification with ISTE and to support learning for all students.”

The ISTE Seal of Alignment program can help educators find resources that support the authentic and appropriate integration of education technology in the classroom. Seals are earned only by resources that have passed rigorous review by ISTE’s education experts.


About the ISTE Seal of Alignment for Readiness

The ISTE Seal of Alignment program reviews and recognizes resources for their alignment to the ISTE Standards. Products and services submitted to the program undergo a rigorous review by a panel of standards experts and are evaluated based on the extent to which they build the skills embodied in the standards indicators. The Readiness seal of recognition is for resources that focus on learning to use technology and that help build the foundational technology skills needed to support the ISTE Standards.
