Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), the nation’s 7th largest school division, will implement the Rubin Emerge curriculum division wide for all high school career and technical education (CTE) students in the 2021-2022 academic year.

FCPS, which is also the biggest school system in Virginia, plans to incorporate Emerge lessons on email etiquette, LinkedIn, networking, entrepreneurship and others within various CTE classes spanning 9th to 12th grades. FCPS has 27 high schools and 57,000 students in CTE classes each year.

As well, FCPS will integrate Rubin Emerge into its learning platform, Schoology, through single sign-on so students can complete Emerge assignments without the need to leave Schoology or enter a username/password.

The decision to roll out Emerge division wide comes amid increased demand from colleges and employers for writing, speaking and other “employability” skills.

“We are proud and humbled at the opportunity to provide Emerge to every high school within Fairfax County,” said Danny Rubin, the founder of Rubin. “We know administrators within Fairfax County have wonderful ideas for how to use our content, and the partnership shows the broader educational community that Rubin is a premier provider of online instruction for business communication skills.”
