Cherry Gulch uses the PLATO Learning Environment (PLE) as a web-based curriculum to give our students the opportunity to make-up credits on an accelerated pace outside of their normal school schedule if need be. Plato also is used as a national benchmark test system for our students as a means for us to assess strengths and needs in the different academic areas. Students take a benchmark test at the end of every term to help us track progress and structure the upcoming term to better serve the students. With PLE teachers can create standards-aligned course content, measure its effectiveness based on student performance, and make on the fly adjustments to meet benchmark requirements for a specific student or whole class. PLATO is an effective tool used by our teachers and students and is in no way used to take the place of the educator in the classroom.
