EdgeEX — When should my district adopt EdgeEX?

Imagine EdgeEX courses will be available for any school to adopt during a promotional access period for the 2023–24 school year. The promotional period is the week of July 10, 2023 through June 30, 2024. There are a few things to consider when determining if early adoption of EdgeEX is right for your district or school.

Depending on the answers to the questions below, a district or school might choose to fully adopt all the available courses, do a small pilot (for example, one course with a few teachers, a few courses with one teacher, just one school within the district), or give teachers time to explore EdgeEX courses during the fall and wait until the second semester to enroll students. All of these options are available.

Give teachers time to explore EdgeEX courses during the fall and wait until the spring semester to enroll students.

You can also wait until 2024 or even later to adopt EdgeEX courses.

Do we have teachers who are excited to try something new? Does your school have teachers who are interested in piloting EdgeEX math courses? Pilot EdgeEX courses with a small group of teachers in the fall and plan to adopt more broadly in the spring.
Are we a relatively small district or school with good communication and strong leadership? Is it possible to coordinate a district- or school-wide adoption this fall for math courses with minimal disruption? Adopt EdgeEX courses for Back to School 2023.
Do we have time to customize our math courses to match the scope and sequence we use today? Customizing a course in EdgeEX doesn't take long, but the ability to insert content into a course (including lessons from a different course as well as teacher-authored prompts and projects) will not be available until later in 2023. If you have time, adopt EdgeEX courses for Back to School 2023. If you don't have time, wait until a time that works better for you.
