Innovative educators use digital learning opportunities to drive student achievement
Herndon, Virginia, May 30, 2019 — Fuel EducationⓇ, a leading provider of online and blended learning solutions for students in grades K–12, today announced the winners of its annual Transformation Awards. The Transformation Awards recognize schools, districts or organizations that are successfully transforming the way teachers teach and students learn. Fuel Education partners with more than 2,000 school districts across all 50 states and has recognized seven outstanding programs for this year’s awards.
Each Transformation Award winner uses Fuel Education’s portfolio of online courses and adaptive learning tools to meet the varying needs of their students, who represent different demographic, economic and geographic backgrounds. The winning programs use online learning to overcome challenges in unique and inventive ways, whether through providing students with the means to earn a high school diploma after dropping out, filling teacher vacancies, helping students recover credits, differentiating instruction based on real-time progress data or providing students with access to a wider variety of elective courses.

● Achieve Online School (Colorado) – for using online curriculum with a blended component to provide at-risk students with flexible options, individualized learning solutions and robust extracurricular opportunities like archery, rock climbing and ropes courses.
● Cabarrus County Schools (North Carolina) – for using the Middlebury ELL program during an elective class block to supplement regular instruction, helping approximately 100 students a year learn academic English.
● Granger High School (Utah) – for implementing the Construction Youth Mentorship program, an initiative that provides both credit-recovery classes and hands-on construction education to help at-risk students graduate.
● Miami-Dade Online Academy (Florida) – for using online teachers to provide full-time learning to students across the state while consistently outscoring statewide averages on standardized testing.
● Seneca Center (California) – for developing a program that supports credit recovery, promotes independence and provides flexible opportunities for students to focus on college and career readiness.
● Southern University Laboratory Virtual School (Louisiana) – for creating a statewide high school-university partnership, helping students earn college credits online while in high school.
