Penfield School District Leads the Way with Futures Project

The Penfield Central School District has taken the lead in developing a consortium that will bring online learning to area school districts. Through a teacher-led initiative called the Futures Project, Penfield has piloted blended courses (a combination of online and classroom learning) over the past few years. In order to expand this effort, Penfield is spearheading a consortium that will offer online courses to area students in 2014-15. SUPA Sociology, The Business of Music, and College Preparatory Math are among the online courses planned for next year.

“This is about taking courses we already teach and offering that quality curriculum taught by our quality teachers to students in a new format,” said Penfield teacher Jim Doser, who is leading the project. “The curriculum is still rich, rigorous and interactive,” he added. “The advantage we have is that we can still provide that sense of community, that connection to our schools and our teachers, while offering students this option.” For more information, visit www.penfield.edu and click on Futures Project under Quick Links.
