Nonsectarian and Anti-Discrimination Policies
eDynamic Learning is nonsectarian in its courses, enrollment policies, employment practices, and operations.

eDynamic Learning operates without regard to student or employee race, sex, nationality or ethnic origin, religion, age, marital or family status, sexual orientation, ancestry, political beliefs, pregnancy, disability/impairment, gender identity or expression, or any other ground that is in violation of the law. No person shall be restricted access to, excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any eDynamic Learning course, program, or activity, or in any employment conditions or practices.

eDynamic Learning employs an external diversity/sensitivity editorial organization to review our lessons, images, and assessments to identify potential bias, stereotypes, and inauthenticity. This editorial group assigns readers to review material from the perspective of their own lived experiences. Depending on the subject matter, the diversity readers assist with identifying potentially insensitive language, and we adjust and update if needed, prior to release.

Florida Statewide Assessment Program
eDynamic Learning does not offer courses that require Florida State end-of-course exams and does not administer these assessments. Students should coordinate their testing locations, dates, and times with their home school district. Additional information can be found using this link, Information for Florida Families.

Student PII is only used for legitimate educational purposes, under “school official” exemption to FERPA. eDynamic Learning never sells, discloses, or uses student PII for sales, marketing, or other purposes, except what is reasonably necessary to provide the teaching service.
