As one part of EBIA’s blended learning model, teachers use the following software programs to create personalized learning experiences, customized curriculum and assignments for their classes. These software platforms allow students to receive rich and diverse curriculum, differentiated learning, and help students manage their assignments and grades.
Illuminate is EBIA’s student information system. It offers a Student Portal that provides secure, web-based access for students to stay informed of their daily attendance, assignments and grades in school.
The Illuminate Student Portal has three main sections:
- Academic Report: This section gives your student a quick snapshot of their grades in each of his/her current classes.
- Grade Book Summary: This section gives your student an overview of their assignments for each class, which assignments are missing, and the grades for the assignments that have been turned in.
- Attendance: This section give shows your student their daily attendance, indicating if he/she has been absent or tardy to class and how often.

“Achieve3000® provides the only patented, cloud-based solutions that deliver daily differentiated instruction for nonfiction reading and writing that’s precisely tailored to each student’s Lexile® reading level”. – Achieve3000
Achieve 3000 is used in EBIA’s English and History classes to differentiate teaching for our students. Teachers assign articles that are relevant to their current project, Achieve3000 tailors each article so each student reads that article at their reading level. Throughout the year, teachers adjust the reading level to match the growth of each student. If you feel the reading level is not correct for your student, please reach out to their teacher.
