The St. Tammany Parish Public School system (STPPS) and progressive live instruction company Proximity Learning Inc. (PLI) are eager to announce a partnership that secured virtual computer science and French classes in STPP high schools in the midst of a statewide teacher shortage. Between PLI's innovative live classroom framework and STPPS's commitment to "engage all students in high-quality education resulting in lifelong learners who can contribute to a society in which they live," this affiliation will undoubtedly advance STPPS's ability to put the nations most qualified educators in front of its students.

STPPS, the fifth-most populous Parish in Louisiana, was unable to complete a full school year cycle without losing their French and computer science high school teachers. In terms of recruiting certified educators the district sought a permanent solution that would secure flexibility and stability. STPPS's administrative team heard about PLI, a top rated live k-12 staffing company, through a state funded program called Supplemental Course Academy via the Louisiana Department of Education.

PLI's overarching message is to connect students with opportunities for academic success by seamlessly promoting authentic learning opportunities corresponding with differentiated education. Consequently, PLI has grown into the platform of choice for educational opportunities that are adaptable to the needs of each respective school district.

STPPS' students who had completed the first semester of computer science were able to finish the second semester through PLI's live course program that streamed certified master teachers into their classrooms every day, thus ensuring every student received the education they deserved. The district has felt a sense of ongoing security in their teacher recruitment efforts with the knowledge that PLI has been vetted and approved by the Louisiana Department of Education. The new generation of technology savvy students possess unprecedented skill with information technology, enough to thrive in the digital domain. It is up to the world of academia to adapt to an ever increasing demand for progressive learning and engage students in easily accessible mediums. According to STPPS, students who completed a full year of computer science through live instruction did exceedingly well and were able to earn credit.

"In a state that is facing chronic teacher shortages it is exciting to see a district maintain and expand their course options and their requisite accessibility for students," said Evan Erdberg, CEO of Proximity Learning Inc.
