Edgenuity Pathblazer- Math and ELA
Edgenuity can be found under your student’s NCEDCloud ->Clever account. There are both ELA and Math pathways in Edgenuity.  These pathways were formed specifically for your student based off of their most recent MAP tests.

SORA- ELA
SORA is an online E-book provider.  There are many books from the Charlotte Public Library and CMS library that your student can borrow to read through SORA.  This is a great resource to use when you need a new book to read! SORA can also be found under your student’s NCEDCloud ->Clever account or at soraapp.com.
