  8. 14. Changing Teaching “ For me, ACCESS Distance Learning has created a new enthusiasm for teaching. I have learned many new things just by being an ACCESS teacher that carry over to my face-to-face students. They have benefited from my teaching in ways that they will never know.” - Debbie Pate, Teacher

  11. 17. Changing Schools “ At Tarrant High School, an inner city school, the superintendent gives credit to ACCESS Distance Learning as being the impetus for school reform. Tarrant began enrolling students in ACCESS courses in the spring of 2006. Since then, the graduation rate of Tarrant High School students has increased 14% (from 66% in 2006 to 80% in 2008); the number of students taking foreign languages has almost tripled; students have more confidence in their ability to be successful in more advanced coursework; and the first AP course in the school’s history has been delivered to its students.”   - Martha Rizzuto, Ph.D., Superintendent, Tarrant City Schools

  15. 21. Helping Students “ I am a senior this year; however, without these online classes I would not be . . . I have learned more this year in English than I have in all of my previous years combined. ACCESS Distance Learning classes have very effective ways of teaching. They teach you responsibility and teach you to rely on yourself to get your work done right. Personally, I think these classes are one of the best things to ever happen to the Alabama School System. I wanted to personally thank you for making the opportunity for this class possible.” -Aaron Craig, Student
  16. 22. Helping Students “ I just wanted to let you know that my AP score came in today, and I made a 5! I could not believe it. I am not nervous at all right now about Calculus in college . I really am grateful that I was privileged enough to have this online teacher. ” -Aarika Boggs, Student
  17. 23. Helping Students “ I just wanted to talk about how ACCESS Distance Learning saved my life . In the fall of 2008 I was eighteen years old and considered an eleventh grader. I was in an eleventh grade homeroom because I couldn’t pass 9 th grade English and got behind when I failed it two times. You can say I was in big trouble trying to graduate. Then my counselor told me about ACCESS. In ACCESS I started taking English 11 & 12. When I passed eleventh grade English, I realized that I could graduate so I started to buckle down and do my work. Yes, it was a lot of work, but I knew what I had to do. Now I have passed all of the graduation exams. Now I can be a part of the 2009 graduating class as we walk across that stage for our diplomas. I am happy to graduate now and proud of myself for what I have done.”   David Martinez, Student
