Edgenuity online classes will continue for DMPS elementary students

Des Moines Public Schools will continue to offer an online learning option for elementary school students next school year despite a drop in participation.

The Des Moines School Board approved offering the Edgenuity program for the 2022-23 school year for kindergarten through fifth-grade students at a cost of $363,000 Tuesday night. District officials first offered the online elementary school option at the start of the 2021-22 school year amid rising COVID-19 cases. Around the same time, officials expanded Virtual Campus, the district’s online high school, to include middle school students. 

Edgenuity, a for-profit education company, provides online curriculum to school districts. The program is student-led, meaning the child sets the pace of lessons, with help from Edgenuity staff members.
