What is EDGE?
EDGE is a robust online learning program for students in grades K-12 that is deeply connected to their schools and powered by Salem-Keizer Public Schools. Utilizing a new enhanced learning experience for students and families, EDGE students will be connected to high quality, rigorous and well-rounded learning opportunities, including instructional supports, English language development support and more.
With EDGE, we believe that each student’s educational journey is unique—and all students perform better when they receive supportive individual attention in a safe learning environment.
Once a student enrolls in EDGE, our staff will discuss each individual child’s strengths and evaluate previous school performance to inform and guide the best personalized online learning approach. Our staff will set individual goals to match the student’s personal and academic skills and establish a workable timeline to meet those goals.
When parents take an active role in education, students prosper—that’s why we empower and collaborate with parents. With the EDGE program, parents can be closely involved in their child’s daily education. They’re able to see real progress every day using our online learning system and working with supportive SKPS teachers to keep their students on track.
Students are motivated to learn when they see relevance to real world applications. Because EDGE is directly connected to your student’s school, kids that choose to enroll in this program will have the benefit of pacing their own learning while having the flexibility to work, volunteer and care for others, while also having a variety of options for socialization and developing friendships and participating in a variety of clubs, sports and activities at their school.
