PROSSER, WA – Dec 5, 2011 – Red Comet (www.redcomet.org) announced today that its accredited online learning program for high school students is available for free to all home schooled high school students in the State of Washington. The only requirement is that the home schooled student is a qualified resident in the State of Washington.
Also, students who are currently attending private high schools may take Red Comet courses for free if they are qualified residents in the State of Washington. Red Comet offers a wide variety of core as well as Elective courses to choose from. Private high schools can partner with Red Comet to offer the courses that the private school is currently not offering. Their students can benefit from this extended curriculum to earn credits in courses that are not currently offered at their private high school.
School staff can directly log into the Red Comet platform to view the performance metrics of their students. School staff can also proctor tests and have a clear view on a student’s progress and performance in a course. They will receive periodic updates from Red Comet whenever their student completes a milestone. Schools will also be notified in the event of persistent student inactivity.
“With the pending cutbacks in education funding, many parents are left with few resources that they can use to teach core subjects to their students. In some cases, parents feel ill-equipped to teach advanced high school courses – especially in math and science. Also, many homeschoolers do not have easy access to elective courses. Our interactive courses are fully aligned to state standards. Students with a variety of learning preferences will find our grade-appropriate content engaging. Red Comet’s accredited online program offers a viable distance learning opportunity for these homeschooled high school students,” said Ms. Sapna Ganeshan, President of Red Comet.
“Private high schools do an excellent job in offering a solid curriculum to their students. However, many private schools are strong in some subject areas while they would like to further solidify their curriculum offering in the remaining areas. Private high school teachers are well trained in a variety of subjects but the changes in state standards sometimes requires focused expertise in certain key concepts. A partnership with Red Comet will help the private high school extend its curriculum while allowing the students to gain credits that they otherwise may not have earned. Since Red Comet is approved by the Washington State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instructions (OSPI) as a “Multi-District Online Course Provider”, a partnership with Red Comet will be a win-win situation for any private school in the State of Washington,” said Dr. Jay Srinivasan, Managing Director of Red Comet.
