“Subject has been instrumental in helping us overcome teacher shortages and redesign our summer school credit recovery program. Subject clearly stands out from its competitors for its thoroughness, commitment and partnership We’re excited to leverage Subject for enrichment by adding additional AP courses and electives that we wouldn’t be able to offer in our small school program!” said Michael VerrochiFounding Head of School, KIPP NorCA, San Jose, California
The primary focus of the education platform is course expansion and credit recovery, with standards-aligned course options available for schools and districts to purchase. At the start of the fall 2022 school year, Subject’s offering will include more than 60 courses, spanning core courses, APs, and electives. Students receive personalized login credentials through their school, giving them access to the course’s video library, as well as abbreviated video lessons, assignments, quizzes and consistent comprehension checks. Every student retains the ability to take their course wherever they are – whether in class during a summer session, at home or on the go.
“Our mission is to impact as many students as possible, of all zip codes and socio-economic statuses. We are thrilled to have our first 100 partners on board, and we look forward to learn from these school leaders how we can create a better product for them and others to achieve incredible results for all types of students,” said Michael Vilardopresident and co-founder.
