Online and Accelerated Courses to Support Student Transition Curriculum & Career Readiness

High school transition courses play a crucial role in preparing all students for the challenges and opportunities of post-secondary experiences. Let’s Go Learn’s commitment to equity, inclusion, and achievement for all students includes a curriculum that supports a successful journey to life beyond secondary school.

Our Transition Curriculum addresses two key areas. 

  • Courses that support teachers of students with disabilities fulfill IDEA 2004 mandates for their students
    • Teachers with students with IEPs must have transition plans in place by the time students are 16.  Transition courses must include appropriate topics such as postsecondary education, vocational education, integrated employment (including supported employment), continuing and adult education, adult services, independent living, or community participation (IDEA, 2004).
  • Courses that prepare all students in their transition to post-secondary academics, career, and life skills
    • Lessons address academic, social, and emotional aspects of transition, ultimately helping students achieve success in their educational and career pursuits.

LGL Digital Literacy Edge

To live, work, and prosper in the 21st century, your students need proficiency in digital literacy. Research demonstrates that student equity and inclusion depend on all students mastering internet literacy, digital communication skills, critical thinking, and problem-solving. “Technology and social media are rapidly changing the way that citizens consume, create, and share information” (Office of Education Technology, US Department of Education).

Each lesson in our Digital Literacy Edge course provides direct instruction and practice for whole-class, small-group, or individual learning. Lessons are also aligned with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) standards.

Whether at school, library, community center, or home, your students live their everyday lives in digital environments. Students read online content and e-books, communicate across the globe with video, audio, and text, and they personalize their learning with apps and websites. They use keyboards, not pencils and they venture into the virtual world from the traditional. Clearly, all students need digital skills so they can communicate, collaborate, and create safely and effectively in their daily lives and create digital footprints that they can be proud of.

LGL Financial Literacy Edge

Promoting financial literacy is important for teenagers’s financial well-being and for society as a whole. It can lead to better financial decision-making, increased savings, reduced debt, improved retirement planning, and greater economic stability.

Financial literacy refers to the knowledge and skills that individuals possess to make informed and effective decisions about their finances. It encompasses various aspects of personal finance, including budgeting, saving, investing, borrowing, and understanding financial products and concepts. Financial literacy is essential because it empowers individuals to manage their money wisely, make informed financial decisions, and work toward achieving their financial goals. As of June 2023, 22 states have passed financial literacy bills.

Here are some key components of financial literacy:

  • Budgeting: Understanding how to create and manage a budget is fundamental to financial literacy. This includes tracking income and expenses, setting financial goals, and making informed spending decisions to ensure that income covers expenses and allows for savings.
  • Saving and Investing: Financial literacy includes knowledge about different saving and investment options, such as savings accounts, certificates of deposit (CDs), stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and retirement accounts like 401(k)s and IRAs. Understanding these options helps individuals make informed decisions about where to put their money to achieve long-term financial goals.

  • Debt Management: Knowing how to manage debt responsibly is a critical aspect of financial literacy. This includes understanding interest rates, credit scores, and strategies for paying down debt efficiently. Financially literate individuals make informed decisions about taking on debt and paying it off.

LGL Math & ELA High School Equivalency Courses

Lack of mastery of fundamental math and ELA concepts, strategies, and processes can be a barrier to success. LGL’s Math & ELA Transitional courses provide comprehensive support and offer optional pathways to help students either review and strengthen skills or fill gaps before graduation.

Some high school students may have passed high school courses without mastering essential concepts or skills, leading to gaps in their knowledge. Many come from diverse academic backgrounds, and not all students have access to rigorous coursework or effective teaching. Our lessons can also support students with IEPS with SDI lessons.

Targeted interventions in math and English language arts help to reduce the number of students in remedial college courses that are non-credit bearing. If students are going to community colleges or universities, they may have to take placement tests to assess their readiness for college-level courses. Our high school equivalency lessons will help them review and strengthen their skills before these assessments.
